Lia Diagnostics achieved 510(k) clearance for the "first and only" flushable, biodegradable pregnancy test for over the counter use.

The Lia Diagnostic Pregnancy Test features proprietary coating technology and it is water dispensable so users have the option of flushing the results.

It was designed using the "same natural, plant fibers as most toilet papers and weighs less than six squares of the lading three-ply toilet paper," the Philadelphia-based company said.
