Cat.No.: LH 131/132/133
The One step LH Ovulation Test is an immuno-chromatographic in vitro assay for the qualitative and semi-quantitative determination of the human luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine to predict the time of ovulation in women.
SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:
Luteinizing hormone is always present in human urine. LH increases dramatically just before a woman's most fertile day of the month in a process commonly referred to as the "LH Surge." This LH increase triggers ovulation, the process during which an egg is released from a woman's ovary. Because the egg can only be fertilized between 6 to 24 hours after ovulation, detecting ovulation in advance by testing for the LH surge is very important for women seeking pregnancy.
The best times to test are between 11:00 am to 3:00 pm and between 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Early morning testing is not recommended as LH does not appear in the urine until later in the day. To ensure that you do not miss your surge, you may test twice a day, once in the earlier time frame and once in the later time frame. The detection limit for the LH Test Kit is 30 mIU/ml LH. Urine samples with LH concentrations of 25 mIU/ml or greater will induce a positive result.
