Description

The Alere Actim® PROM test is an accurate aid in the diagnosis of suspected Premature Rupture of Membranes.

It is a rapid immunoassay that specifically detects Insulin-like Growth Factor Binding Protein -1 (IGFBP-1). IGFBP-1 accumulates at high concentrations in amniotic fluid. When the membranes are ruptured, IGFBP-1 is detectable in a vaginal swab sample.

Following a simple procedure, a vaginal swab sample is extracted into a buffer. The assay develops and can be read in 5 minutes.

BENEFITS
Easy and fast to sample - no speculum required.
Rapid results.
Only rapid test clinically validated for all patients with suspected PROM.
Proven accuracy in several clinical studies.
Reliable results even in the presence of contaminating substances.
