For the Perfect FIT: Switch to the NEW PillowPac2 Mailing Solution
Providing patients with convenient, easy to use sample collection and return methods helps improve test uptake and compliance, whilst ensuring quality samples for the laboratory. Any logistics solution also needs to be cost effective and provide efficient processing for the laboratory to create the best workflow.
The new PillowPac2 compliant sample return envelope is specifically designed for Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) sample collection devices. These slim, light-weight mailers offer a robust and easy-to-use logistics solution for your bowel screening service. It is designed to lay flat in the outbound pack to the patient to keep postage costs down, then when the sample is ready for return, the pack is squeezed and pops up allowing the tube to be easily placed into the pack. The pack is then sealed shut using a self-seal system and used as a return envelope to the lab for testing. It also contains a fixed strip of absorbent material for any contamination or leakage.
A useful feature of the design is that when the pack has been popped up, there are internal flaps that come into place to hold the tube in the middle of the pack. This ensures easy opening of the device be it by scissors, or a fully automated opening solution.
