FSH Rapid Test Cassette,Detection For Follicle Stimulating Hormone,Women's Health Test Kit
|Dipstick, Cassette, Midstream
The FSH Rapid Test Cassette (Urine) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) in urine to aid in the detection of menopause.
Menopause is the permanent cessation of menstruation but is usually not scientifically diagnosed until one full year after a woman’s menstrual periods have stopped. The period leading up to menopause, and the 12 months following, is known as perimenopause. Many women experience symptoms during this time including hot flashes, irregular menstrual cycles, sleep disorders, vaginal dryness, hair loss, anxiety and mood swings, short-term memory loss and fatigue. The onset of perimenopause is caused by changes in the levels of hormones in the female body that regulate the menstrual cycle.
As the body produces less and less estro/gen, it increases its production of FSH, which normally regulates the development of a female’s eggs Therefore, testing for FSH can help determine whether a woman is in the perimenopause stage. If a woman knows she is perimenopausal, she can take the appropriate steps to keep her body healthy and avoid the health risks associated with menopause, which include osteoporosis, increased blood pressure and cholesterol, and increased risk of heart disease.The FSH Rapid Test Cassette is a rapid test that qualitatively detects the FSH level in urine specimen at the sensitivity of 25 mIU/mL. The test utilizes a combination of antibodies including a monoclonal anti-FSH antibody to selectively detect elevated levels of FSH.
The FSH Rapid Test is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the qualitative detection of human Follicle Stimulating Hormone in urine to evaluate the onset of menopause in women. The test utilizes a combination of antibodies including a monoclonal anti-FSH antibody to selectively detect elevated levels of FSH. The assay is conducted by adding a urine specimen to the specimen well of the test device and
observing the formation of colored lines.
The specimen migrates via capillary action along the membrane to react with the colored conjugate. FSH present in the specimen binds to the conjugate, forming a colored antibody-antigen complex. The FSH antibody immobilized in the test zone of the membrane captures the FSH-Conjugate (antibody + signal reagent) complex in the test region and the rabbit antibody immobilized in the control zone of the membrane captures the conjugate in the control region .
Two lines are thus visible. If the line in test line region is same as or darker than the line in the control line region, it indicates a positive result. If the line in the test line region is lighter than the line in the control line region; or if there is no line in the test line region, it indicates a negative result.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Allow the test, urine specimen and/or controls to reach room temperature (15- 30°C) prior to testing.
1. Determine the day to begin testing. (See the above section: “WHEN TO START TESTING”).
2. Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test cassette from the sealed pouch and use it within one hour.
3. Place the test cassette on a clean and level surface. Hold the sample dropper vertically and transfer 3 drops of urine (approx.120ul) to the specimen well of the test cassette, and then start the timer. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well. See illustration below.
4. Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. Read the result at 3 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 10 minutes.
POSITIVE: Two lines are visible and the line in test line region (T) is the same as or darker than the line in the control line region (C). A positive result means that the FSH level is higher than normal. Record the results and see the chart below to interpret results.
NEGATIVE: Two lines are visible, but the line in the test line region (T) is lighter than the line in the control line region (C), or there is no line in the test line region (T). A negative result means that the FSH level is not elevated at this time. Record the results and see the chart below to interpret results.
INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
