4 of the most important rapid tests for women’s health at Hölzel Diagnostika from AllTest
Fetal Fibronectin (fFN) rapid test
fFN test cassette
Fetal fibronectin is increased in cervicovaginal secretions in the first 24 weeks of gestation (24 weeks’ gestation), but decreased between 24 and 34 weeks in normal pregnancies. The fetal fibronectin (fFN) rapid test cassette (vaginal secretion) is a visually interpreted, qualitative immunochromatographic test device. It serves to detect fFN in cervicovaginal secretions as an aid to assess the risk of premature delivery during pregnancy. The test is intended for professional use to diagnose fetal membrane (ROM) rupture in pregnant women.
iGFBP-1 (Insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 1) rapid test
The iGFBP-1 is also known as placental protein 12 (PP12). IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs) are believed to be important in regulating fetal and neonatal growth.
The rapid test for insulin-like GFBP-1 (iGFBP-1) is a visually interpretable, qualitative immunochromatographic test device for the detection of iGFBP-1 in vaginal secretions during pregnancy. This test is intended for professional use to diagnose rupture of the fetal membranes (ROM) in pregnant women because iGFBP-1 is considered a marker protein for the detection of amniotic fluid.
IGFBP-1 can be detected in a vaginal secretion sample with a sensitivity of 25 ng / ml.
Vaginal pH quick test
Vaginal pH rapid test panel
An acidic vaginal pH of 3.8 to 4.5 is a basic requirement for the optimal function of the body’s protection of the vaginal flora. The vaginal pH value rapid test (Vaginal Swab) is a quick and easy method for the qualitative determination of the pH value in female vaginal smears. The test is used to support the diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis.
Whole Blood hCG Rapid test
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone that is produced by the developing placenta shortly after fertilization. In normal pregnancy, human CG can be detected in whole blood as well as in urine 7-10 days after conception.
The rapid test is a chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of hCG in serum, plasma and whole blood. It supports the diagnosis of early pregnancy. The cut-off is 10 mlU / ml.
