DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Allow the test strip, urine specimen and/or controls to equilibrate to room temperature (15-30°C/59-86°F) prior to testing.
- Remove the test strip from the sealed pouch and use it as soon as
- With arrows pointing toward the urine specimen, immerse the test strip vertically in the urine specimen for at least 5 seconds. Do not pass the maximum line (MAX) on the test strip when immersing the strip. See the illustration
- Place the test strip on a non-absorbent flat surface, start the timer and wait for the red line(s) to appear. The result should be read at 3 minutes. It is important that the background is clear before the result is
Note: A low hCG concentration might result in a weak line appearing in the test region (T) after an extended period of time; therefore, do not interpret the result after 10 minutes.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
(Please refer to the illustration above) POSITIVE*: Two distinct red lines appear. One line should be in the control region (C) and another line should be in the test region (T).
NEGATIVE: One red line appears in the control region (C). No apparent red or pink line appears in the test region (T).
INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test strip. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
*NOTE: The intensity of the red color in the test line region (T) will vary depending on the concentration of hCG present in the specimen. However, neither the quantitative value nor the rate of increase in hCG can be determined by this qualitative test.
