The hCG Test Pregnancy Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of human chorionic gonadotropin in urine to aid in the early detection of pregnancy.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone secreted by the developing placenta shortly after fertilization. During pregnancy, the human body will start producing a special pregnancy hormone known as hCG. hCG can be detected in both urine and serum or plasma as early as 7 to 10 days after conception and its rapid rise in concentration make it an excellent marker for confirmation of pregnancy. This test will detect the presence of hCG in urine as early as the first day of a missed period. hCG levels continue to rise very rapidly, frequently exceeding 100 mIU/mL by the first missed menstrual period and peaking in the 100,000-200,000 mIU/mL range about 10-12 weeks into pregnancy. The rapid increase in concentration of hCG in both urine and serum or plasma shortly after conception, as well as its subsequent rapid rise in concentration during early gestational development, render it an excellent marker for early pregnancy identification. With a sensitivity of 25 mIU/mL, PregatHome Pregnancy Strip detects the presence of hCG in urine, serum, or plasma specimens qualitatively. The procedure detects elevated levels of hCG in urine, serum, or plasma using a blend of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies.
