Georgia USA: Peezy Midstream to reduce public health lab workload

Forte Medical’s US partner Owen Mumford Inc in Georgia USA, is working with the Governor’s Office, GEMA, Homeland Security and the Department of Public Health to provide critical medical devices to hospitals, clinics and healthcare professionals who are facing resource and supply shortages. 

Five hundred thousand Unistik® safety lancets and 5,000 Peezy® urine specimen collection kits will be donated through GEMA to be distributed to Georgia’s healthcare partners and facilities in need. This donation assists those with supply concerns and also relieves the burden on the laboratories by providing a urine specimen collection system that is designed to greatly reduce contaminated samples and lessens the need for repeat testing.

Loyola Medical School Chicago publish Peezy Midstream clinical trial evidence

A clinical trial to ascertain reduced bacterial contamination in Peezy Midstream collected urine specimens has been published by the Loyola Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

The Clinical Trial, a collaboration between Departments of Microbiology, Urology and Obstetrics and Gynaecology, concludes that Peezy Midstream delivers a much better ‘clean catch’ midstream urine specimen than either traditional methods or the use of an antibacterial wipe used before a patient provides the specimen.

A Cross-sectional Pilot Cohort Study Comparing Standard Urine Collection to the Peezy Midstream Device for Research Studies involving Women is published in the Journal of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery and available on Researchgate. Download the full study here.
