Kardioline HCG Urine Pregnancy Test is a self-performing immunoassay designed for menstruation. In most cases the test is accurate at this date. However, because of variation the qualitative determination of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in urine for early in HCG concentration among women, or potential miscalculation of the last period, if there detection of pregnancy by visual. Kardioline HCG Urine Pregnancy Test is designed for both is a negative result, and pregnancy is still suspected, you should retest after a few days. SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION

due to its high concentration of HCG. However, urine specimens collected at any time of the
Human Chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a glycoprotein hormone secreted by the developing day may be used. If specimens cannot be assayed immediately, they can be stored at 2-8ºC placenta shortly after fertilization. During normal pregnancy, HCG can be detected in urine as early as 7 days following conception, doubling every 1.3 to 2 days. At the time of the last for up to 72 hours prior to testing. Urine specimens exhibiting visible precipitates should be missed menstrual period, urine HCG levels are about 100mlU/ml with peak levels of 100,000 settled to obtain a clear specimen for testing.

1. Sensitivity - Kardioline HCG Urine Pregnancy Test will display positive results with
specimens containing HCG at the level close to or greater than 25mlU/ml.
2. Specificity - The following compounds exhibited no interference when dissolved
in urine, which had HCG levels of 0 and 25mlU/ml.
