Artron Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Ultra Sensitive Early Detection Test Kit

Catalog Number: A01-02-113 (strip)/A01-02-122(cassette)/A01-02-130 (midstream)


Artron one-step Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) Test Kit is a rapid and convenient immunochromatographic in vitro assay for the detection of HCG hormone in urine to help in the early diagnosis of pregnancy. The device is designed for self-testing use. The test provides a visual, qualitative result. Clinical expertise and professional judgment should be sought to further evaluate the result of the test.


Artron one-step HCG Test Kit is an antigen-capture immunochromatographic assay, which detects the presence of HCG in human serum or urine samples. Monoclonal antibodies specifically against HCG (beta or alpha unit) are 1) conjugated with colloidal gold and deposited on the conjugate pad, and 2) immobilized on the test line of the nitrocellulose membrane. When the urine sample is added the gold-antibody conjugate is rehydrated and the HCG if any in samples, interacts with the gold-conjugated antibodies. The antigen-antibody-gold complex will migrate toward the test window until the Test Zone (T) where it will be captured by immobilized antibodies, forming a visible pink line (Test band), indicating a positive result. If HCG is absent in the sample, no pink line will appear in the Test Zone (T), indicating a negative result.
To serve as an internal process control, a control line should always appear at Control Zone (C) after the test is completed. The absence of a pink control line in the Control Zone is an indication of an invalid result.
The detection limit for the A01-01-130 HCG Test Kit is 20 mIU/ml HCG, and for the A01-02-130 HCG test kit (Ultrasensitive) is 10 mIU/ml. Urine samples containing HCG levels equal to or greater than the detection limit will test positive. Samples containing HCG at levels less than the


Time to Results:
10 min (Strong positive specimens may produce positive results in as little time as 1 minute. Confirm negatives in 10-20 minutes.)
Analytical Sensitivity:
Analytical Specificity:
No cross reactions were observed from all tested specimens
No interference from common biological and chemical analytes
Diagnostic Sensitivity:
Diagnostic Specificity:
The precision was determined by replicate assays of both positive and negative samples with devices from three different production lots. The resultant data indicated no appreciable between lot variation when testing both positive and negative samples across three different lots.
Storage condition:
Store at 2-30°C, avoid direct sunlight and freezing.
Shelf life:
36 months
