Samantha Hughes - creating an easier way to take urine sample from babies

From The Weekend , 10:05 am on 12 January 2020

Samantha Hughes is a young designer who's identified a need in the healthcare system for a new approach to designing equipment that's often impractical.

The Massey University student's first project is called Clean Catch, a new non-invasive device to collect a sample of sterile urine from children who aren't potty trained and who need an urgent diagnosis. 

She's working on the design with the support of the Auckland District Health Board.
