FSH Menopause Test Kits

FSH rapid test kits can detect the onset of menopause , thus help women with family history or vulnerable to menopause to get prepared for the syndromes come along with menopause.

one-step FSH Rapid Urine test Midstream

Intended Use

FSH rapid test kits are one step urine test kits, based on the lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay principle, and are intended to qualitatively detect the Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in human urine. The FSH test results are of great clinical value to the diagnosis of many problems related with reproductive activities in women, and can help the women with family history of premature menopause or vulnerable to menopause to get prepared both physically and mentally for the syndromes come along with menopause.

Testing Principle of FSH Test

In the FSH Rapid Test strip and cassette, monoclonal antibody colloidal gold particles are embedded in the Sample area. After urine specimen is added, the FSH hormone, if present, will bind with these particles, and the complex will move along the membrane. When reaching the testing line region, the complex will be caught by the pre-coated monoclonal antibody in the test line region under the antibody-antigen immuno binding effect, and if the concentration of FSH is higher than 25 mIU/ml, and a visually observable pink line will develops, indicating a positive result.

Menopause

Normal onset of menopause is between the age of 45 and 55. Many women in perimenopause and menopause feel depressed and irritable, and are vulnerable to many other symptoms.

Premature menopause is cessation of menstrual periods before the age of 40. The causes may be family history; medical treatments, such as surgery to remove the ovaries; cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation to the pelvic area. A woman having premature menopause are at more risk for osteoporosis later in life.

So for the women with family background or near the age of natural menopause, to test the FSH regularly is recommended to avoid the related diseases.

Materials Provided in the Test Kit

  • Lateral Flow immunochromatographic assay (GICA) Strip;
  • Instruction leaflet;

Specimen

Urine Collection

A urine specimen must be collected in a clean and dry container.

For hormone test such as HCG prenancy test, the first urine specimen in the morning is preferred since it generally contains the highest concentration of hormone, although urine specimens collected at any time of the day may be used.

Urine specimens exhibiting visible particles should be centrifuged, filtered, or allowed to settle to obtain clear specimen for testing.

urine Storage Condition

Urine specimens may be stored at 2-8°C for up to 48 hours prior to testing. For long-term storage, specimens may be frozen and stored below -20°C.

Frozen specimens should be thawed and mixed before testing.

Testing Principle of Lateral Flow Double Antibody Sandwich

GICA Double Antibody Sandwich Method Illustration

In the double antibody sandwich lateral flow chromatographic rapid test, two antibodies are used to detect viral protein or antigen.

In the test band region, antibody specific to the target antigen or protein is immobilized. In the end of the membrane strip where the samples are added, another antibody conjugated with colloidal gold particles is embedded.

During the testing process, specimen from the patient is added to the end of the membrane strip. The antibody conjugate particles will resolve into the specimen, where the antibody conjugate will react and bound to the target protein or viral antigen, if present.

This antigen-antibody conjugate complex then moves along the strip to the testing band region, under capillary effect. The immobilized antibody in the test line region then bound to another binding site on the antigen complex, and the antibody-antigen-antibody complex is fixed on test band region.

When the complex congregates, the highly concentrated colloidal gold particles will develop some red or pink color, indicate a positive result.

If there is no target protein or antigen in the specimen, the colloidal gold particles will not congregate and no color will develop, indicating a negative result.
