Check-1 hCG Whole Blood Cassette (hCG test 25 mlU/ml at 10 min - visual qualitative read only)
Check-1 hCG Whole Blood Cassette (hCG test 25 mlU/ml at 10 min - visual qualitative read only) (3181) is a rapid test for the detection of (hCG) pregnancy in whole blood samples. Manufactured by VEDALAB.
The hCG-CHECK-1 rapid test is a rapid qualitative assay for the detection of human chorionic gonadotropin in whole blood samples. The method employs an 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 10 minutes, levels of hCG as low as 25 mIU/ml can be detected, or 10IU at 15 minutes.
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 higher than 25 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.
