Curas is proud to add a new product to its Hygiene Pulp™ range, namely the REF 08040 Midstream Urine Sampler.

The product is a safe, economical and clean (disposable) device, made out of paper pulp, which can be placed in(to) the patient’s toilet seat, the toilet bowl, the commode chair or indeed for a bed-ridden bedpan situation it can be used directly in the bed.

The new REF 08040 product comes with a capacity just shy of a litre, and it is manufactured with a best-of-class measuring scale (for volume indications only), which makes it very easy as well as hygienic to collect a mid-stream urine sample from the patient; without having one taken from a reusable bedpan where it risks being contaminated.

The growing Urine Handling category of Curas is the overall framework for this product, which can easily be disposed of in the regular waste flow, and the product can be used in conjunction with SAP by Curas™ fluid absorber as well as the new range of Curas Hygiene Control Bags, where the nurses might require additional Infection Prevention measures.

At the beginning of 2016 Curas is introducing its all-new Curas C3 Emptying Bag System, a new product and safety standard for the handling & emptying patients’ urine bags and urine hourly measurement systems.

As all nurses know of - and experiences - the growing risks, inconveniences and associated problems with the ad-hoc or repeatedly emptying tasks, related to the catheterization of patients, and as the C3 Emptying Bag concept has been developed with these important issues in mind, offering a big step forward in relation to the nurses’ job handling in this regard.

The C3 focuses on, and delivers, the absolutely safest and most modern solution in regards to minimizing the cross contamination risks and management linked to nosocomial urinary tract infection of catheterized patients. Whether in a short-term operating room related situation, or in a long-term critical care setting, the C3 by Curas adds an unprecedented step forward for Infection Prevention measures – and Curas invites you to trial the product.

Sample kits are available upon request.
