hCG is a qualitative; two site sandwich immunoassay for the detection of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) hormone, which is a marker for pregnancy, in human urine samples. hCG is a glycoprotein hormone which is secreted by viable placental tissue during pregnancy.
The appearance of hCG in urine soon after conception and its rapid rise in concentration makes it an ideal marker for early detection and confirmation of pregnancy. The concentration of hCG continues to rise rapidly, peaking in the 30,000 ~ 100,000 mIU/ml range by 10 to 12 weeks into pregnancy.
