For Self Testing Specimens: Urine

 

[Product Name]

Generic Name: Luteinizing Hormone (LH)Ovulation Test Kit (Colloidal Gold)

 

[Intended Use]Please read all the information in this instruction for use before performing the test.

it is intend for qualitative determination of LH levels in women urine to predict ovulation time, so as to guide reproductive women to choose the optimal conception time or safe period contraception.

 

[Principle]

Luteinizing Hormone(LH)Ovulation Test Kit based on the principle of colloidal gold labeling technique and immune chromatography of double-antibody sandwich method. During testing , the LH in urine specimen migrates via capillary action along the membrane to react with LH monoclonal antibody conjugated with nanoscale colloidal gold particles forming an antibody-antigen complex.

Note: lf it is uncertain about how many days in a menstrual cycle, please use the shortest menstrual cycle (21 days) to calculate the test starting date. In this case, it is recommended to conduct the test once a day for 10 days. If your menstrual cycle is less than 21 days or more than 40 days, please consult professional doctor for the date of starting test.

Testing

1.Urinate into a clean, dry cup or container.

2.Remove the test kit from the foil pouch and familiarize yourself with the product. The test kit should be used as soon as possible especially at temperature higher than 30 or highly humidity environment.

3.Strip:Put the test strip in the urine sample at the direction of arrow. Do not pass max line. Wait for at least about 5s and then immediately lay the test kit on a flat surface.

Cassette: Put the test cassette on the table, add 3 full drops urine vertically into sample well (S ) by dropper.

Midstream: Remove the midstream cap, put the test midstream in the urine sample container Wait for at least about 5s and then lay the test kit on a flat surface. If you prefer, tip pointing downward directly into your urine stream.

4.Wait for about 5 minutes and then read the result. Don't read the result after 10 minutes.

[Result Interpretation]

Positive (+) : Two red lines are visible. One is located in the test line region (T), the other is in control line region (C).And the line in test line region (T) is the same as or darker than the one in the control line region (C) It indicates probable ovulation in 24-48 hours.

Negative (-) : One or two red lines are visible. One is located in the test region (T), the other is in control region (C).And T line is lighter than the C line, or there was no T line. It indicates that no LH surge has been detected.

Invalid: There is no red line in control region (C).Incorrect operation or the product has been damaged are the most likely reasons. Please repeat the test with a new test. If the problem still exists, should stop using the product immediately and contact with local suppliers.

2.2 Interfering substances: The following potentially interfering substances have been detected. None of the substance sat the concentration tested interfered in the assay, and the urine with pH (from 4 to 9) also did not interfere the test result.

3.Precision:

Detecting the LH control materials at the same concentration, the results are consistent, and signal intensity (color) almost be same.
