Rovers Medical Devices initiated the development of the self-sampling for hrHPV. This was ten years ago, as it became evident that in order to increase the number of women that take part in cervical screening, an easy to use self-sampler was required. This led to the development of the Viba-Brush® and the Evalyn® Brush.
Testing for HPV contributes to the prevention of cancer
It is known that persistent infection with the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) may ultimately lead to cervical cancer. Testing for HPV helps to identify the women who are at risk of developing cervical cancer even before it has a chance to develop. Self-collection for HPV testing using our devices, can be done at home and is quick, simple, painless and reliable.
