One Step LH Ovulation Rapid Test Cassette
The One Step LH Ovulation Rapid Test Cassette is a rapid one step assay designed for qualitative detection of human luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine to predict time of ovulation. It is for home self-testing and in-vitro diagnostic use only.
How does it work
Luteinizing hormone (LH) in elevated quantities causes ovulation (the release of the egg from the ovarian follicle). Throughout the menstrual cycle, a small amount of LH is produced, but during the middle of the cycle LH briefly and dramatically increases. This increase is called the “LH surge” and precedes ovulation. Conception is most likely to occur within 24 to 48 hours following the LH surge.
The LH Ovulation Test is specifically designed to detect your LH surge – the time when you are likely to ovulate. If you receive a positive on an LH test, you are in your most fertile phase of your menstrual cycle.
Storage and Stability
Store as packaged in the sealed pouch at room temperature (4-30oC). The kit is stable within the expiry date printed on the labeling.
Once open the pouch, the test cassette should be used within one hour. Prolonged exposure to hot and humid environment will cause product deterioration.
As stated on the product label.
nterpretation of Results
Negative Ovulation Test - No LH Surge:
Only one color band appears on the control region or the test band is present but lighter in color intensity than the control band. This means there is no LH surge.
Positive Ovulation Test - LH Surge:
If two color bands are visible and the test band is nearly equal to or darker than the control band, you are experiencing the hormone surge that indicates you will ovulate soon, usually within 24 to 48 hours of the surge. If you want to be pregnant, the best time to have intercourse is after 24 hours but before 48 hours.
The result is invalid if no color line appears in the control region (C), even if a line appears in the test region (T). In any event, repeat the test.
For Best Ovulation Test Results
Ovulation test results may vary for different individuals depending on the concentration of LH your body produces, as well as monitoring frequency, and testing technique. The best method is to test once a day, preferably later in the afternoon or early evening since LH is best synthesized during active period. First morning urine is not recommended as most women experience a blood LH surge in early morning but it does not show up in the urine until later of the day.
It is recommended to use fresh urine sample with minimum amount of fluid required to pass over the reactive membrane region since tests detect minute concentrations of LH hormone. Reduce your liquid intake for 2 hours before testing, since drinking excessive amounts of liquids can dilute the LH in your urine yielding a negative result when it should be positive.
