The Evalyn® Brush is the most reliable self-sampling device for screening for the Human PapillomaVirus (HPV). HPV is the causative agent of cervical cancer, the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths among women world-wide.

Self-sampling without discomfort

Timely screening can prevent many women dying needlessly of cervical cancer each year. Sadly, many women do not take tests regularly, because they do not have enough time, or are worried, embarrassed, fear discomfort, or for cultural reasons. The Evalyn® Brush helps to overcome these issues. It is an easy, safe and reliable method of collecting vaginal/cervical specimens without discomfort. The design and use ensure the highest number of valid samples across all age groups.

Benefits of the Evalyn® Brush:

  • Built-in features to assure correct sample taking
  • Standardized method for taking samples results in the highest number of valid samples across all age groups (one time right, no repeat sampling)
  • A comprehensive solution for self-sampling: collecting, shipping and easy processing in the laboratory
  • Available with a unique RFID chip to link to women

Highest number of valid samples: one time right, no repeat sampling

The Evalyn® Brush is the only device offering built-in features to ensure correct sample taking and to reassure women. The insertion indicator wings and feedback through click sounds, guide and simplify correct usage. The Evalyn® Brush’s soft and flexible hairs collect sufficient cell material, irrespective of the age or health of the woman concerned. This has been confirmed in clinical studies. A CSI study performed in Denmark has shown an inadequate sample rate as low as 0.31% (a valid sample in 99.69% of the cases!). This study also demonstrated that the Evalyn Brush® is suitable for women across all age groups.

Easy to use, safe to ship, perfect to process

The Evalyn® Brush is more than just a device. It is a safe procedure for collecting, shipping and easy processing of self-collected samples. The Evalyn® device itself is also the shipping container, so no extra and complicated handling is required at home. The cap and packaging protect the sample during shipment. The sample is so rich in DNA that different dilutions can be applied on the sample in the laboratory. Without detection problems, simplifying processing in the laboratory. All these features make the Evalyn® Brush a comprehensive solution in the field of self-sampling.

Unique identification with RFID

Mixing up samples or data. Everyone involved in sample taking is on the alert to prevent this from happening. As well as with a normal barcode, the Evalyn® Brush can be provided with unique identification technology: RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). In which case a chip is incorporated in the device. Invisible, easy to use and with no risk of damage during processing.
