Peptonic Medical AB (publ) today announced the launch of two new products on the home market in Sweden: VagiVital Menopause FSH Test and VagiVital Urinary Tract Infection Self Test, both of which represent significant milestones in the work to build the market’s most complete offer that diagnoses, treats and prevents women’s intimate health through clinically proven self-care products.
“We are now taking further important steps in the creation of the market’s most complete offering in women’s intimate health,” said Fanny Falkman Grinndal, Nordic Business Manager at Peptonic Medical.
VagiVital Urinary Tract Infection Self Test is a self-test that offers fast and reliable diagnosis of urinary tract infections, with a clinically proven accuracy of 99%. The reason for the high precision is that the test measures four parameters – leukocytes, blood, protein, and nitrite – while most existing tests only measure two or three. This user-friendly test provides results in just 2 minutes.
Urinary tract infection is a distressing and common condition that affects 50-60% of all women of all ages with many women experiencing recurrent infections, making the VagiVital Urinary Tract Infection Self Test a valuable product for many women.
VagiVital Menopause FSH Test is a self-test designed to detect early signs of perimenopause and menopause, with a clinically proven accuracy of 94%. The test gives a clear indication of whether a woman is in menopause, and it delivers results in just 5 minutes.
Menopause marks an important time of transition in a woman’s life, and perimenopause can begin as early as the age of 35 with a variety of diffuse symptoms. The VagiVital Menopause FSH test gives women a better understanding of the symptoms they are experiencing and facilitates the decision on possible next steps.
These products represent valuable complements to the company’s existing product portfolio and offer an important addition to existing and potential customers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Europe. The launch is expected to have a positive impact on sales of Peptonic Medical’s existing product range. By improving the availability of diagnostic self-tests at home, the company expects continued increased interest and engagement, which drives overall growth for VagiVital’s product portfolio, which is already growing very rapidly in the domestic market today.
”Through two new self tests, we strengthen our position as a leader in women’s intimate health, while at the same time giving women the opportunity to monitor their health in a proactive and independent way with clinically proven self-care products,” said Fanny Falkman-Grinndal.
VagiVital FSH Menopause Self Test and VagiVital UTI Self Test are now available for purchase directly from Peptonic Medical’s official online store: www.vagivital.se.
