Description

The Swiss Mediscan One-step Rapid Pregnancy Test is an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) qualitative test for rapid detection of hCG in urine.

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is produced by trophoblastic tissue and it appears around the 8-9th day after ovulation where fertilization has occurred, or around the 4th day after conception. In a 28 day cycle with ovulation occurring at day 14 hCG can be detected in urine or serum in minute quantities around day 23, or 5 days before the expected menstruation. Its function includes facilitation of implantation as well as maintenance and development of the corpus luteum.

The hormone concentration doubles approximately every 2 days and peaks between 7-12 weeks after the first day of the last menstrual period with a mean concentration of 50,000 mIU/mL. Concentrations as high as 100,000 mIU/mL have been reported in normal pregnancies during the first trimester. In normal subjects, hCG in urine provides an early indication of pregnancy symptoms. Since elevated hCG levels are also associated with trophoblastic disease and certain nontrophoblastic neoplasms, the possibility of having these diseases must be eliminated before a diagnosis of pregnancy can be made.
