ThehCG Rapid Test Strip (Urine/Serum) is a rapid visual immunoassay for the qualitative, presumptive detection of human chorionic gonadotropin in human urine or serum specimens. This kit is intended for use as an aid in the early detection of pregnancy.
Principle of HCGTest Strip (Urine/ serum)
The hCG Rapid Test Strip (Urine/Serum) detects human chorionic gonadotropin through visual interpretation of color development on the strip. Anti hCG antibodies are immobilized on the test region of the membrane and anti mouse antibodies on the control region. During testing, the specimen reacts with anti-hCG antibodies conjugated to colored particles and precoated on 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 hCG in the specimen, a colored band will form at the test region of the membrane. The presence of this colored band indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. The appearance of a colored band at the control region serves as a procedural control, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
