Bedford presents Post Vasectomy Semen Analysis test kit at Mass Innovation Nights
Foundation Staff | May 24, 2011
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.
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.
We are very proud to be presenting this innovative solution at Mass Innovation Nights on June 8, from 6-8:30 PM in Westborough. This event is free and open to the public. Please join us! Also, Mass Innovation Nights will select 4 of the 11 featured products to give a five minute presentation.
