EasySampler – paper urine and stool collector
The EasySampler series from GP Medical Devices contains two disposable products for easy and convenient collection of stool samples and one disposable product for collection of urine and watery stool samples. The products are all handcrafted and made of patented special paper. It is easy to install on the toilet seat and ensures easy and hygienic stool or urine collection. After use, flush the easily soluble paper down the toilet.
EasySampler is a Danish invention, and physicians, nurses and patients alike have contributed to the development of the models, which:
- are easy to install on the toilet
- offer patients an easy, user-friendly and hygienic way of collecting stools or urine
- reduce the risk of contamination by water, disinfectants or other sources
- ensure the quality of the sample being collected
- separate stools from urine and menstrual blood
- are biodegradable and may be flushed down after use
Medically approved products
The EasySampler series is designed with patient comfort and safety in mind. For this reason, it is also important to us, at GP Medical Devices, that all EasySampler products meet the requirements for the process of collecting samples from people.
Therefore, all EasySampler Kits are medically approved for the collection of stool samples. They are IVD-approved and CE-marked in accordance with the In vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Regulation 2017/746, class A, rule 5 for specimen receptacles.
EasySampler – complete solutions
Stool may contain valuable information about what is wrong in the stomach, intestines or other parts of the gastrointestinal system. Therefore, some patients have to collect stool samples for examination.
To many patients, taking a stool sample is a predicament, and many find it both difficult and uncomfortable. Moreover, things do not get any easier given that patients are often only provided with a sample bag, without any instructions on how to collect the sample.
Therefore, we at GP Medical Devices – in collaboration with physicians and nurses – have developed complete solutions for this, often slightly embarrassing situation.
Eco-friendly, natural and biodegradable paper
The patented special paper is manufactured in Finland, and Eurofins in France, where they have passed flushing and biodegradability tests that certify all the models in the EasySampler series. The eco-friendly paper is designed to avoid air pockets in the pipes and thus blocking of drains when the paper is flushed down.
EasySampler is CE-marked according to IVD classification, and EasySampler kit solutions are approved under UN 3373/P 650.
Sufficient time for sample collection
Coating on one side of the paper ensures that it can stay in place for 6-8 minutes after contact with stool/urine. This means that you can follow the user-friendly guide and collect the sample at your leisure. On the other hand, flushing the paper down the toilet is fast.
From the moment, you loosen the paper from the edge of the toilet bowl and it meets the toilet water, it takes the paper only 60 seconds to begin to dissolve.

EasySampler for collecting urine and watery stool
The EasySampler series for urine and watery stool collection is made from the same certified special paper that is used in the stool collection products; however, it is of higher quality. This means that the paper can carry more (up to 400 g stool and 200 ml urine) – and can last longer (more than 6-8 minutes). This way, the patients have plenty of time to follow the instructions to collect the sample.
EasySampler Urine and Stool Collector is IVD-approved, CE-marked and registered with the FDA.
