HyStool® bags are ideal for use with the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Test, for Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and any other medical condition requiring the submission of a faecal stool sample. HyStool® bags dissolve 100% in cold water and can simply be flushed away after use.
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.
Attach the bag
Peel the backing paper off from the four adhesive pads on the corners of the bag. Open the bag as wide as possible and using the adhesive pads stick the bag to the toilet seat or bowl rim. Fit the bag towards the rear of the seat leaving a gap as shown.
Use the Toilet
1. Put some folded toilet paper in the bottom of the bag. 2. Sit on the toilet seat and use the toilet as normal. Pass a stool into the bag. Try not to pee into the bag as this may cause the bag to dissolve and burst.
Collect Stool Sample
HyStool® only provides a method of containing the stool you must now use a bowel screening test such as the bowel cancer screening test, or a similar test for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis etc to take a sample of the stool.
Flush the Toilet
On completion of the stool screening test simply unpeel the stickers from the toilet seat allowing the bag, stickers, and contents to fall into the toilet. This may now be safely flushed away.
