Awards Nominations

Mittstrom- Mid Stream Urine Collection - FWEE / Charlwood Design

Product Design - Medical and Scientific

- Winner 

Mittstrom is an innovative device to assist with the hygenic collection of midstream urine for pathology analysis. It is a low cost, fully biodegradable saddle made from corn starch into which a standard pathology collection jar is placed. Early stream urine is diverted away from the jar by a thin cornstarch membrane which dissolves over a period of 3 seconds and then allows the midstream urine to flow into the collection vial. Once collection is complete the user simply removes the filled jar and flushes the device down the toilet. This innovative product has been granted patents internationally
