Qvintip – self-sampling device for HPVanalysis

Qvintip® is a self-sampling device with a detachable tip, that allows you to collect a vaginal fluid sample yourself. The sample is then forwarded to a laboratory for HPV-analysis.

How it works

Why should I take an HPV-test?
A persistent infection with high-risk human papilloma virus (HPV) can over time lead to cell changes which may develop into cervical cancer. Your sample will be analysed for presence of high-risk HPV.

*Qvintip should be handled with care and only according to these instructions.
*The white tip may not be removed or bent before self-sampling
*Do not use during menstruation.
*For single use only.
*Keep the device out of reach for children.
