One-Step Urine/Serum Combo Pregnancy DipStick Test is a colloidal gold antibody complex based immunoassay designed for the qualitative determination of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in serum or urine. This test is for professional use in obtaining a visual qualitative result for the early detection of pregnancy.
One-Step Urine/Serum Combo Pregnancy DipStick Test is a qualitative, sandwich dye conjugate immunoassay for the determination of human hCG in urine.4.5 The method employs a combination of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to selectively identify hCG in test samples with a high degree of sensitivity. In less than 5 minutes, elevated levels of hCG equal to or greater than 25 mIU/mL can be detected.
|Positive:||At 5 minutes, two pink colored bands appear, one in the control (C) region and one in the test (T) region, indicates a positive result and that the specimen contains hCG level of 25 mIU/ml or greater.|
|Negative:||At 5 minutes, only one pink colored band appears in the control region (C), the result is negative and that the specimen contains hCG level of less than 25mIU/mL.|
|Invalid:||At 5 minutes, if no bands appear, or a test band appears without a control band, the result is invalid and the test should be repeated using a new test strip.|
