A Summary About Testing:
Gonadotropin Hormone Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a glycoprotein that is immediately secreted by the placenta following implantation after fertilization. In a normal pregnancy, HCG can be detected in urine and blood one week after implantation, with levels ranging from 5-50 mIU/mL. HCG is distinguishable in urine and blood serum 6-15 days after sexual intercourse. The purpose of using this diagnostic tool is to screen for an increase in HCG levels when it rises to 100-200 mIU/mL or higher.
The method of using the test:1. Remove the plastic cap from the device and urinate onto the area for adding the sample for 7-10 seconds to allow the urine to be absorbed by the absorbent material inside the test. (The sample area has 5 ports through which urine penetrates into the test kit).
2. After adding the urine, replace the plastic cap and place the test on a clean, flat surface with the result window facing upwards.
3. When the test begins working, you can observe the movement of a red-colored solution towards the test and control lines.
4. Read the result after 1 minute or slightly longer. Test results can be visible in less than 1 minute, but results obtained after 10 minutes are not reliable.
