What is HCG?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a glycoprotein secreted by the trophoblast cells of the placenta, we can confirm pregnancy with a pregnancy test, which is a test for the presence of HCG in the blood or urine.
Uses of HCG
A qualitative (reported as positive or negative) test for HCG is routinely used to confirm pregnancy. ß-HCG, a quantitative (reported as a specific value) test for HCG, detects the actual amount of HCG present in the blood. It can help diagnose ectopic pregnancies, help diagnose and monitor pregnancies, and help monitor the status of women after miscarriage. In addition, a quantitative HCG test can be used to diagnose trophoblastic disease, germ cell tumors of the testes or ovaries. It can also be used to monitor treatment and the recurrence of tumors.
How is the test sample collected?
Urine: Routinely tested for HCG in urine, a random urine sample early in the morning is preferred.
Blood: A blood sample collected from an elbow vein can also be used for HCG testing.
What is the best time to detect HCG?
A qualitative HCG test in urine or blood can be performed 10 days after a woman has stopped menstruating to confirm pregnancy (some methods can detect HCG one week after conception).
As a professional biological company, Lyher has launched a variety of pregnancy test products in the form of HCG test strips, HCG test cassettes, HCG pregnancy test kit and digital pregnancy test, which can accurately and quickly detect the HCG concentration in human urine or blood, so that women can know the earliest information of conception and help the healthy growth of the baby.
