The TODAY Ovulation Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the semiquantitative detection of humanluteinizing hormone (hLH) in urine to aid in the detection of ovulation. The result can be read visually in minutes to indicate a positive or negative result for 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 human luteinizing hormone (hLH) which triggers the release of a ripened egg from the ovary. This “hLH surge” usually takes place in the middle of the menstrual cycle. The TODAY Ovulation Test is a complete system to help predict the time of ovulation, and peak fertility. It is during this fertile time that pregnancy is most likely to occur. The TODAY Ovulation Test detects the hLH surge in urine, signaling that ovulation is likely to occur in the next 24-36 hours.
Important: The hLH surge and ovulation may not occur in all menstrual cycles.
The TODAY Ovulation Test is a rapid lateral flow immunoassay for the semiquantitative detection of hLH surges in urine, signaling that ovulation is likely to occur in the next 24-36 hours. The test utilizes a combination of antibodies including a monoclonal hLH antibody to selectively detect elevated levels of hLH. The urine sample moves forward laterally on the test due to capillary forces. In the presence of hLH an immunological reaction between hLH and labeled anti-hLH antibodies takes place leading to a distinct red coloured test line. Depending on the hLH concentration, the test line becomes lighter or darker. Other labeled antibodies form the control line. This reaction serves as a proof for the proper use and function of the test. This methodology is named immunochromatography.
