Eve Medical Launches Canada’s First HPV At Home Screening Service
Eve Kit aims to disrupt the medical screening industry
Toronto, ON (March 13, 2017) – Eve Medical announced the launch of Canada’s first HPV at home screening service, available at evekit.com. Eve Kit makes screening accessible to women across Canada, empowering them to stay on top of their sexual health in the comfort of their own homes.
Four Canadian women are diagnosed with cervical cancer every day, which is treatable and preventable with early detection. “One third of Canadian women are not screening regularly,” said Eve Medical CEO, Jessica Ching. “Common barriers include distance, discomfort, or a lack of time. Eve Kit enables women to overcome these barriers by allowing safe, reliable screening without a trip to the doctor’s office.”
A More Accessible Health Experience
Enhancing the patient experience is a key component to increasing screening rates in Canada. That is why Eve Medical spent six years refining the design and delivery of Eve Kit.
Using Eve Kit is easy – the HPV at home screening kit can be purchased online at evekit.com. The ergonomically designed, tampon-like device collects a viable sample, then is placed back in a box and is shipped off to an accredited lab. Within one week, results are available online through a secure portal.
Safe and Reliable
Eve Kit has gone through extensive testing to ensure that it collects high-quality samples. A Health Canada approved medical device, Eve Kit is a safe and reliable alternative to in-clinic sampling for women who are avoiding or delaying necessary cervical screenings.
Availability and Pricing
Eve Kit is available for purchase at evekit.com. The at home HPV screening kit retails for $110.00 CDN. The purchase price includes shipping both ways, the sampling device, and the lab test and results service.
