The FSH Rapid Test Dipstick is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) in urine to aid in the detection of menopause.
FSH Test Strip detects FSH concentration of 25 mlU/ml and greater. The test has been standardized to the World Health Organization Thira International Standard
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.
1. Remove the FSH test strip from the pouch
2. Immerse the FSH 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
Allow the test, urine specimen and /or control to reach room temperature(18-30°C) prior to testin.
1 Determine the day to begin test.
2. Bring the pouch or canister to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test Dipstick from the sealed pouch or
closed canister and use it as soon as possible.
3. With arrows pointing toward the urine specimen for at least 15 seconds. Do not pass the maximum line (MAX) on the test
Dipstick when immersing the Dipstick. See illustration below.
4. Place the test Dipstick on a non-absorbent flat surface, start the timer and wait for the colored line(s) to appear. The result
should be read at 3 minutes
INTERPRETATION RESULT (Please refer to the illustration)
Positive: Two lines are visible and the line in test line region(T) is the same as or darker than the line in the control line
region(C). A positive result means that the FSH level is higher than normal. Record the results and see the chart below to
Negative: Two lines are visible, but the line in the test line region(T) is lighter than the line in the control line region , or there
is no line in the test line region (T). A negative result means that the FSH level is not elevates at this time. Record the results and
see the chart below to interpret result.
Invalid: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons
for control the failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test. If the problem persists, discontinue using the
test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
