Cervical cancer of which approximately one woman dies every two minutes is the 5th most common cancer in women worldwide with approximately 471,000 new cases diagnosed each year. 80% of the cases occur in low-income or middle-income countries. Unfortunately, many women do not have access to routine tests such as Pap Smear enabling early diagnosis, thus treatment. Self Smear Test Kit allows personal users to perform the Smear test at home easily and safely by contributing the dissemination of the practice in reduced cost. Providing six caps to the user, which is enough for a 3 year period of testing once in a six month, the product enabling sanitized transmission of the sample taken from the vaginal area to the testing laboratory has received several awards at national and international level.
