hCG Pregnancy Rapid Test

FDA approved and CE marked HCG Pregnancy test kits, highly sensitive for the confirmation of pregnancy in the very earlier stage.

HCG Midstream

Intended Use

CE0123 markNOVAtest ® one-step HCG Pregnancy rapid test kits are approved by US.FDA, and with CE0123 mark for self-testing. These kits are a highly sensitive testing kit for the detection of human chorionic gonadotrophin hormone (hCG) in urine or serum specimen, as a rapid test device to confirm pregnancy in the very earlier stage.

With hCG urine test, positive levels (higher than 10 mIU/ml) in the blood can be detected as early as 1 to 2 days after missing a period. The merits of HCG urine pregnancy test kits are: less expensive; can be done at home if only following the testing procedures shown in the instruction leaflet.

NOVAtest ® hCG rapid tests are easy to use and give a visual, qualitative result, and have been inspected by EU notified party TUV and can be sold to self-testing market, so our hCG pregnancy self-testing kit are suitable to be performed in the home with the confidentiality and privacy that one's house can offer.

hCG Concentration

the chart of HCG Concentration

The hCG level in non-pregnant females is less than 5.0 mIU/ml, which reaches 5-50 mIU/ml three weeks after the last menstrual period, and 2,000mIU/mL a month after conception. The rapid rise of hCG concentration after conception makes it an excellent marker for early confirmation of pregnancy. Following delivery, the hCG normally drops to non-pregnant level within two weeks. Ectopic pregnancies and pregnancies terminating in spontaneous abortion tend to have lower than normal circulating hCG levels, while somewhat higher levels are often seen in multiple pregnancies.

The function of hCG

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is initially secreted by the trophoblastic cells of the placenta shortly after implantation of the fertilized ovum into the uterine wall. This hormone is critical to the viability of the fetus, by preventing the disintegration of the corpus luteum of the ovary and thereby maintaining progesterone production that is critical for a pregnancy in humans; it also affects the immune tolerance of the pregnancy so as the fetus is not rejected by the maternal body.

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.
