One Step hCG Urine Test is a rapid pregnancy test, which you can easily carry out yourself. It detects the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin (“hCG”), which appears in urine very early during pregnancy.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone, produced by the developing placenta shortly after the conception and secreted into the urine. The pregnancy test contains antibodies which specifically react with this hormone. When the strip is immersed into a urine specimen, capillary action carries the specimen to migrate along the membrane. When hCG in the sample reaches the Test Zone region of the membrane, it will form a colored line. Absence of this colored line suggests a negative result. To serve as a procedure control, a colored line will appear at the Control Zone region, if the test has been performed properly.
HOW TO READ RESULTS:
Negative (not pregnant) :
Only one color band appears in the Control Zone. No apparent band on the Test Zone. This indicates that no pregnancy has been detected.
Positive (pregnant) :
Distinct color bands appear in the Control and Test Zones. It indicates that you are pregnant. The color intensity of the test bands may vary since different stages of pregnancy have different concentrations of HCG hormone.
No visible band at all, or there is a visible band only in the test region and not in the control region. Repeat with a new test kit. If test still fails, please contact the distributor where you bought the product with the lot number.
