Babycheck-1 Qualitative Easy Reader+® 10IU/10mins
Babycheck-1 Qualitative Easy Reader+® 10IU/10mins (3071-10) is an immunochromatographic rapid test for the qualitative detection of hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) in urine or serum. Manufactured by VEDALAB.
The 3071-10 BABYCHECK-1 Mini Clip test, is a rapid qualitative, assay for the detection of human chorionic gonadotropin in serum and urine. The method employs a unique combination of monoclonal-dye conjugate and polyclonal-solid phase antibodies to selectively identify hCG in the test samples with a high degree of sensitivity. In less than 10 minutes, levels of hCG as low as 10 mIU/mL can be detected.
As the test sample flows through the absorbent device, the labelled antibody-dye conjugate binds to the hCG forming an antibody-antigen complex. This complex binds to the anti-hCG antibody in the test zone and produces a pink-rose colour band when hCG concentration is greater than 10 mIU/mL. In the absence of hCG, there is no line in the test zone. The reaction mixture continues flowing through the absorbent device past the test zone and control zone. Unbound conjugate binds to the reagents in the control zone, producing a pink-rose colour band, demonstrating that the reagents are functioning correctly.
