The HSCD concept was designed to be used in the medical industry for clinical and home use. The product was designed to capture a patient’s urine and filter it through a unique chemical filter that changed colour if certain markers were present in the liquid. The design of the outer housing was a single injection part with a sliding core for the plunger. The plunger acted as a suction to pull the urine through the filter, as gravity alone would not create enough liquid soaking of the filters.
The product contained a strong snap on lid to cover the bio hazardous contents for transport to a lab for further chemical analysis. Because the product is intended for single use, simplicity a small part count and a compact size were essential.
