BIOCARD HCG is a disposable immunochromatographic testing device for the qualitative assay of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in urine for laboratory and professional use.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone produced by the placenta. In normal pregnancy hCG appears in serum and urine soon after conception. The concentration of the hormone increases rapidly and therefore it serves well as an indicator of pregnancy. The level of urinary hCG is about 100 mIU/ml at the time of the first missed menstrual period. The highest values (100.000 - 200.000 mIU/ml) can be demonstrated towards the end of the first trimester.
