A means of collecting urine from female infants routinely without much ado would be welcomed by physicians. This device is introduced to fill the need for an efficient collector for the urine of female infants in the hospital, the office or the home. It has been tested in private practice and in several pediatric centers and found to have a remarkably high efficiency.

The spout protrudes about 2 inches (5 cm.) and has a standard test tube inserted into it to serve as the final resting place of the collected urine. On the inner aspect is a rubber trough, ⅛ inch (0.3 cm.) thick, which acts as a partition at the perineal area, and attached to it
