Abstract: front page image
(EN) A self-sampling: device used for collecting a homogenized sample of cells from different areas within the vaginal canal by a user. The device, comprises a hollow, cylindrical elongated tubing, a cell collecting area which is covered by an adhesive collecting element is disposed at one end, a channel disposed along the length of the cell collecting area for collecting the cells from different areas along length of the vaginal canal via one insertion, so as to mix the cells within the channel resulting in the homogenized collection of cells, further the collecting element has plurality of organized ridges arranged along the length of the cell collecting area to facilitate cell collection and a handle comprising an economically shaped finger grip, wherein one end of the finger grip having a design or marking to facilitate easy counting of the complete rotations of the device, the handle and the tubing is designed to form a unitary structure.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un dispositif d'auto-échantillonnage utilisé pour collecter un échantillon homogénéisé de cellules, à partir de différentes zones du canal vaginal. Il comprend un tube cylindrique creux, une zone de collecte de cellules couverte par un collecteur adhésif à une extrémité, un canal sur la zone de collecte de cellules pour collecter les cellules à partir de différentes zones le long du canal vaginal lors de l'insertion, de manière à mélanger les cellules à l'intérieur du canal, ce qui permet d'obtenir un ensemble homogène de cellules. L'élément de collecte a plusieurs crêtes le long de la zone de collecte pour faciliter la collecte de cellules. Une poignée de forme économique, une extrémité de la poignée de doigt ayant un marquage pour faciliter le comptage des rotations complètes du dispositif, la poignée et le tube étant conçus pour former une seule structure.
