The patent application (Publication Number: US20240019344A1) describes a bodily fluid sample collection device designed for the collection of naturally expressed bodily fluids. The device consists of a cap with an interior chamber and an engagement member, along with a tube containing a reservoir for sample collection and a complementary engagement member. The cap and tube are designed to be coupled together, allowing for the seamless collection and preservation of bodily fluid samples for analysis. Additionally, the patent outlines a method for collecting bodily fluid samples using the device, which involves depositing the fluid into the chamber, mating the cap and tube to allow for preservation fluid to flow into the reservoir, preserving cells in the bodily fluid for analysis.

Furthermore, the patent application also details a method for collecting fluid samples using the same device, where the fluid is deposited into the chamber and released into the reservoir upon mating the cap and tube. This process ensures the preservation of the fluid and its components for subsequent analysis. Overall, the invention aims to provide a convenient and efficient solution for collecting and preserving bodily fluid samples, facilitating their analysis in various medical and research settings.
