The test utilizes a combination of antibodies including mouse monoclonal anti-hCG antibodies
and goat polyclonal anti-hCG antibodies to selectively detect elevated levels of hCG. The assay
is conducted by adding serum or urine specimen to the specimen well of the test device and
observing the formation of colored lines. The specimen migrates via capillary action along the
membrane to react with the colored conjugate. Positive specimens react with the specific
colored antibody conjugates and form a colored line at the test line region of the membrane.
Absence of this colored line suggests a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a
colored line will always appear at the control line region if the test has been performed properly.
The Sure-Vue® Serum/Urine hCG-STAT is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the
