The hCG Control Set is intended for use with the QuickVue®+ One-Step hCG Combo, QuickVue® One-Step hCG Urine or Combo, and the RapidVue® hCG Test. These controls provide an aid in the interpretation of positive and negative test results and verify proper test performance.
The Positive Control contains purified human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in a buffered solution. The Negative Control contains no detectable human chorionic gonadotropin. The appearance of hCG shortly after conception and its continual increase during the early stages of gestation make hCG an excellent indicator for the detection of early pregnancy.
When used as qualitative controls in place of a patient sample in the QuickVue+ One-Step hCG Combo, QuickVue One-Step hCG Urine or Combo, or RapidVue hCG Test, the results may aid in the interpretation of positive and negative test results and verify test performance.
