How to collect a stool sample at home
So just how do you collect a stool sample at home ? With Hystool® you simply attach one of our collection bags to the toilet. Pass a stool into the bag and having taken the required sample flush the bag and contents away.
There is no need to reach inside a potentially contaminated toilet bowl to fit it. Our stool collection bags are strong, lightweight, very flexible and fit any size of toilet. They are made from PVA which is environmentally friendly and will dissolve in water within minutes so they are safe to flush away.
The bowel cancer screening test kit is sent to those of a certain age every two years. This colorectal test kit does not provide any means of collecting a stool instead the recommendation is that people doing the test use a container like an old ice cream tub to collect their poo. The test checks the stool for blood. Afterwards they have to reach inside the toilet retrieve that soiled container and then dispose of it. We think that HyStool® is a much easier and more hygienic solution.
Here is our simple and hygienic instruction guide to stool sample collection.
Note: … Go for a Pee before using this product. HyStool® bags will dissolve on contact with water so urinate before doing the test to reduce the chance of urine contacting the bag.
HyStool® may be fitted on the toilet bowl rim instead of the seat.
