Performing and convenient

Self UriSponge™ maintains the DNA integrity for up to 1 week at RT with zero-risk of overgrowth. While its performance is comparable with the testing of neat first-catch urine specimens for detection of C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae, Self UriSponge™ considerably reduces the cost per infection detected compared to clinic testing.
