Shineco, Inc Subsidiary, Granted USPTO Patent and FDA Marketing Approval for Its In-situ Fecal Specimen Sampling Device

BEIJING, Dec. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shineco, Inc.(“Shineco” or the “Company”; NASDAQ: SISI), a producer and distributor of Chinese herbal medicines, organic agricultural and other biotech products, announced that its controlling affiliate, Changzhou Biowin Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (“CBP”), has been granted a patent (US 11,458,476 B2) by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) protecting its in-situ fecal specimen sampling device for the use of stool test sample collection, and the marketing approval of the product by the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). This product provides a massager-like fingertip swab, a collection tube and a lid with unidirectional sampling inlet. It is a leading stool sample collection device on the market that can be used for self-collection while defecation and does not need a container or plastic bag for this process. After collection, the laboratory staff can finish all of the testing procedures without opening the sample tube.

Just a few days ago, this product was presented at MEDICA 2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany, one of the largest annual exhibitions of medical devices in the world. Its humane, convenient, painless and innovative design has attracted the attention of professionals and potential distributors in the field.

“We are extremely pleased with the grant of a U.S. patent and the marketing approval from FDA for our Easy-to-Use disposable stool test sample collector, which gives us strong support to optimize the stool sample collection in clinical stool test,” said Dr. Marvin Liu, the Chairman of CBP, in a press release, and he also commented, “The stool test is a very common clinical lab examination and requires the collection of stool sample from the patient, but the current collection method is not very convenient and requires the passing of a stool specimen into a clean, dry container directly or placing a plastic bag inside the bowl using a toilet. This Easy-to-Use disposable stool test sample collector provides a very simple, easy and complete privacy protected tool for stool sample collection. The collection procedure can be done while defecation on squatting or sitting or can be done after defecation. This not only prevents samples from contamination, but also provides a sanitary measure for laboratory staff to work on the stool sample.”
