The LH Rapid Test Midstream (Urine) is a rapid visual immunoassay for the qualitative, presumptive detection of luteinizing hormone in human urine specimens. This kit is intended for use as an aid in the detection of ovulation.
Principle of Ovulation (LH) Test Midstream
The LH Rapid Test Midstream (Urine) detects human luteinizing hormone through visual interpretation of color development on the internal strip. Anti-LH antibodies are immobilized on the test region of the test strip. During testing, the specimen reacts with anti-LH antibody conjugated to colored particles and precoated onto the sample pad of the strip.The mixture then migrates through the membrane by capillary action, and interacts with reagents on the membrane.If there is sufficient LH in the specimen,a colored band will form at the test region of the membrane. The appearance of a band with the color intensity of the same as or stronger than that of the control band (C) indicates a positive result. If only one colored band appears, in the control region (C), and no test band appears, or the test band (T) is less intense than the control band (C). the result is negative. The appearance of a colored band at the control region serves as a procedural control, indicatingthat the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
