Description

Alere Actim® Partus is a useful aid in the management of suspected preterm delivery.

It is a simple, one-step dipstick test for detecting the presence of phosphorylated IGFBP-1 in cervical secretions to observe the risk of preterm or imminent delivery when fetal membranes are intact.

A negative result is a safe indication that imminent delivery is highly unlikely.

BENEFITS
A negative result gives reliable and reassuring evidence that hospitalisation is not necessary, allowing the patient to return home.
