User-friendly collection device provides a simple, efficient and hygienic stool collection method.
Why use the Simple Sampler® Stool Collection Kit?
Stool samples are tested for a variety of reasons and can provide valuable information as to the health of the gastrointestinal system.
Problems Using Other Stool Collection methods:
- Unlike most other laboratory tests, stool samples are normally collected at home. However, many people find this collection process difficult, unpleasant and unhygienic to perform.
- The most common method used by patients for stool collection involves collecting a stool sample directly from the toilet bowl. Sampling a stool from the toilet basin is technically difficult, but also creates potential measurement errors, due to loss of content from the stool into the surrounding water, or contamination from urine, toilet sanitizers and toilet water additives.
- The disposable Simple Sampler® Stool Collection Kit has been specifically developed to solve these problems. It has been designed for attachment to North American toilets and can be flushed after use, as the Simple Sampler® is completely biodegradable.
- Simple Sampler® eliminates variation and the presence of unknown factors, caused by a variety of collection methods. This may ensure greater precision and accuracy of test data and fewer test errors.
