Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein produced by the developing placenta shortly after fertilization. In normal pregnancy hCG in urine, serum and plasma can be detected at the earliest 7 to 10 days after conception. The hCG level increases very rapidly, often exceeding 100 mlUU / ml after the first missed menstruation, reaching its highest value of 100,000-200,000 mlU / ml at approximately 10-12 weeks gestation. The presence of hCG in urine, serum and plasma shortly after conception makes the hormone an excellent marker for early pregnancy assessment.
The hCG Rapid Strip Test is a rapid test that indicates the presence of hCG in urine, serum or plasma with a sensitivity of 10 mlU / ml. The test uses a combination of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to detect elevated levels of hCG in urine, serum or plasma. Despite its sensitivity of 10 mlU / ml, the hCG Strip Rapid Test does not show cross-reactivity with the structurally related glycoprotein hormones hFSH, hLH, and hTSH at high physiological levels.
