SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION OF THE TEST
Human chorionic gonadotropin is a glycopeptide hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. The appearance and rapid rise in the concentration of hCG in the woman's urine makes it a good pregnancy marker. Usually, the concentration of hCG in urine is at least 25 mIU/ml seven to ten days after conception. The concentration increases steadily and reaches its maximum between the eighth and eleventh week of pregnancy.
The Test Yourself at Home (TYAH) Home Pregnancy Test is a rapid, qualitative test for the determination of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in urine. With this test's high sensitivity, pregnancy can be determined as early as the first day of a woman's missed period.
PRINCIPLE OF THE TEST
The TYAH Home Pregnancy Test is comprised of a chromatographic absorbent device and a unique combination of anti-hCG antibodies used to selectively identify levels of hCG as low as 25 mIU/ml can be detected.
