Cross Ovulation Test
The Blue Cross One Step Urine Home Screening Ovulation Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine to aid in the detection of ovulation.
Ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovary. The egg then passes into the fallopian tube where it is ready to be fertilized. In order for pregnancy to occur, the egg must be fertilized by sperm within 24 hours after its release. Immediately prior to ovulation, the body produces a large amount of luteinizing hormone (LH) which triggers the release of a ripened egg from the ovary. This “LH surge” usually takes place in the middle of the menstrual cycle.
The Blue Cross One Step Urine Home Screening Ovulation Test is a complete system to help you predict the time of ovulation, and peak fertility. It is during this fertile time that pregnancy is most likely to occur.
The Blue Cross One Step Urine Home Screening Ovulation Test detects the LH surge in urine, signaling that ovulation is likely to occur in the next 24-36 hours.
Important: The LH surge and ovulation may not occur in all cycles.
Directions for Use:
Allow the test device, urine specimen and/or controls to equilibrate to room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
- Determine the day you will begin testing.
- Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test device from the sealed pouch and use it as soon as possible.
- Place the test device on a clean and level surface. Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 full drops of urine (approx. 100µl) to the specimen well (S) of the test device, and then start the timer. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well (S).
- Wait for the red line(s) to appear. The result should be read at 5 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 10 minutes.
