Ultimed hCG Pregnancy Test (50)

The human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (hCG) is a glucoprotein consisting of an a- and a b-subunit, which is passed initially by the fertilised ovum and after implantation of the ovum in the mucous membrane of the uterus by this into the maternal blood circulation. In the normal course of pregnancy, hCG can be detected in the serum around seven days after fertilisation of the ovum (1 – 4). The hCG concentration has frequently risen above 100 mIU/ml 14 days after fertilisation of the ovum, therefore at the time when the otherwise expected period is missed. Concentration peaks of 200,000 mIU/ml and more can be observed in the 10th to 12th week of pregnancy (2 – 4). The early rise of the hCG concentration even before the period is missed qualifies the hCG hormone for the early detection of pregnancy.

The ultimed hCG pregnancy test is set to a sensitivity of 25 mIU/ml. Both subunits
are acquired by complex formation in the course of the test. Monoclonal antibodies, which because of their immunological specificity do not interact with the structurally related human follicle-stimulating hormone (hFSH), human luteinising hormone (hLH) and human thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) if these are present in physiological concentrations, are used in the test for selective detection of hCG concentrations in urine samples.
