A range of scientific Urine Collection Kits which offers the necessary components for safe and hygienic specimen collection and handling, with the added bonus of a primary collection tube, are now available from laboratory equipment specialists MEDLINE SCIENTIFIC.

The kits are both CE and IVD approved. They are available either plain or with boric acid and are supplied in bags of 50 to facilitate customer distribution. These comprehensive kits, which include a simple instruction leaflet, consist of a polypropylene test tube complete with cap and a flexible sample cup for easy transfer to the test tube. The test tube is labelled with all the details required for sample identification and may be placed directly into an analyser.

Designed to not only assist patients in convenient and hygienic urine collection, the kits also bring benefits to the laboratory. For example, improved base line results are achieved for the microbiologist as the primary tube provides a faster and more reliable result, saving time and money for all parties.
