TidyCup is a disposable, one-time use product that assists women patients in collecting a mid-stream urine sample in a neat and sanitary manner.

This next-level product for the medical jaboratory diagnostics industry was invented by Glynis Byrd and Sam Bigham, who combined their expertise and experience in the medical and manufacturing fields to develop and obtain a patent for the TidyCup. They hope that the use of the TidyCup will become standard practice for women patients collecting urine samples. With the help of the Innovation Fund grant, they hope to proceed to the next step, which is real-world application of their concept by establishing a Pilot Study.
