Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone produced by the developing placenta shortly after fertilization.
In normal pregnancy, hCG can be detected in both serum and urine as early as 7 to 10 days after conception. hCG levels rise
very rapidly and peak after 10-12 weeks. The early appearance of hCG in urine, serum and plasma soon after conception, and
its subsequent rapid rise in concentration during early gestational growth, make it an excellent marker for the early detection or
con rmation of a pregnancy.
Minitest® hCG 10 & BIOSYNEX® hCG 20 demonstrates sensitivity of 10 & 20 mIU/mL, respectively, and are capable of detecting
pregnancy as early as the rst day of your missed expected periods (according to the WHO Internation Standard).
