Follicle Stimulating Hormone Rapid Test Self-Testing, Midstream Format, Women's Health Test Kit
A rapid test for the qualitative detection of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) in urine.
For professional in vitro diagnostic use only.
The FSH Rapid Test Midstream (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 Midstream 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 urinate on or immersing the test midstream in a urine specimen 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. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control line region, indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
WHEN TO START TESTING
If the subject is still having monthly periods, then the first test should be taken during the first week of her menstrual cycle (Days 2-7, with Day 1 being the first day of menstruation). Repeat with the second test 1 week later.
If the subject is no longer having regular periods, the first test should be taken at any time during the month and the second test should be taken 1 week later.
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 midstream from the sealed pouch and use it as soon as possible.
3. Take down the cap of the midstream, then urinate on it or place the absorbent tip(≥2/3) into urine sample in a clean cup at least 15seconds(see illustration below).
4. Cover the cap on the testing midstream, then lay down the product on a clean and stable desk with the test and control window face upwards, and then start the timer immediately.
5. As the test begins to work, you may notice a light colored flow moving across the test and control window. Read the result at 3 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 10 minutes.
1. The test works only when the test procedures are precisely followed.
2. Do not reuse the test device.
3. For professional in vitro diagnostic use only.
4. Oral contraceptive and pregnancy may affect the test and produce inaccurate results.
5. The test may not be used to determine fertility. It cannot be used to determine the ability to become pregnant. Contraception decisions should not be made based on the results of this test alone.
6. Keep out of the reach of children
