As you may know, Bedford's laboratory helps cover some of our overhead by offering a couple unique products -- GEM and PVSA -- that were developed as by-products of our research. PVSA, the newer of the two, was launched just 18 months ago.
PVSA is the first and only post-vasectomy test kit that provides CLIA certified laboratory results from a mail-in kit. This kit was developed using Bedford's patented specimen fixative and mail-in kits for research.
The kit solves a vital problem for urologists: they are liable for their vasectomy surgeries until their patient's surgery has been confirmed with two semen specimens.
At just $30 (plus shipping) the kit is inexpensive, easy to use, and helps doctors solve an almost 79% rate of non-compliance from patients. This solution has proven so powerful, we've more than tripled our number of clients in the last 10 months.
