How an early home pregnancy test works:
When a woman becomes pregnant, her body produces a hormone called hCG
(human Chorionic Gonadotropin).
This hormone appears in the urine. The secretion of this hormone increases throughout the
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone secreted by the developing
placenta shortly after fertilization.
In normal pregnancy, hCG can be detected in serum as early as 7 days following conception,
doubling every 1.3 to 2 days and
reading 100 mlU/ml at the first missed menstrual period.
The appearance of hCG soon after conception and its subsequent rise
in concentration during early gestational growth make it an excellent marker for the
early detection of pregnancy.
OneStep Dipstick Pregnancy Test is a qualitative, sandwich dye conjugate immunoassay for the
determination of human hCG in urine.
The method employs a unique 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 as low
as 20 - 25 mlU/mL can be detected.
