KEY POINTS

Detection for: human follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in urine

Reading time: 5 minutes

Sensitivity: 25 mIU/ml

 

INTRODUCTION

Follicle-stimulating hormone is a glycoprotein produced by the anterior pituitary gland. It plays a central role in reproductive processes. A FSH molecule contains two non-covalently linked subunits: a common subunit designated α and a hormone specific subunit designated β.

 

INTENDED USE

Accu-Tell® FSH Rapid Test Cassette/Midstream/Strip (Urine) is an immunochromatographic in vitro assay for qualitative determination of human follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in urine.

 

TEST PROCEDURE

Read the entire procedure carefully prior to performing any tests. Allow test strips and urine samples to equilibrate to room temperature (18 – 30℃) prior to testing.

For Cassette:

1. Remove the test cassette from the pouch.

2. Draw about 5 drops urine sample into the pipette, and dispense it into the sample well on the cassette.

3. Wait for colored bands to appear. Depending on the concentration of FSH in the test specimen, strong positive results may be observed in as short as 40 seconds. However, to confirm negative results, the complete reaction time (5 minutes) is required. Do not read results after 30 minutes.

For Midstream:

Read the entire procedure carefully prior to performing any tests. When you are ready to test, remove the test and take off the cap. With the test pointing downwards, hold the absorbent sampler in your urine stream for 4 –5 seconds. Do not stream pass the arrow end and taking care not to splash the window. Hold the test for a few seconds or lay the test flat. When you see the urine pass the show window and purple line appear, the test is complete and has worked correctly. Depending on the concentration of FSH in the test specimen, strong positive results may be observed in as short as 40 seconds. However, to confirm negative results, the complete reaction time (5 minutes) is required. Do not read results after 30 minutes.

For Strip:

1. Remove the test strip from the pouch.

2. Immerse the strip with arrow downwards into the specimen. Do not immerse the maximum line. Take the strip out after 3 seconds and lay the strip flat on a clean, dry, non-absorbent surface.

3. Wait for colored bands to appear. Depending on the concentration of FSH in the test specimen, strong positive results may be observed in as short as 40 seconds. However, to confirm negative results, the complete reaction time (5 minutes) is required. Do not read results after 30 minutes.


PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS

Sensitivity:

Accu-Tell® FSH Test Strip detects FSH concentration of 25 mIU/ml and greater. The test has been standardized to the World Health Organization Third International Standard.

Specificity:

The addition of LH (300 mIU/ml), and TSH ( 1000 mIU/ml) to negative (0 mIU/ml FSH) and positive (25 mIU/ml FSH) specimens showed no cross-reactivity.
