AIM MidStream OTC
Early Detection Pregnancy
Test (OTC type)
The Aim MidStream Professional OTC pregnancy test is a fast, convenient, safe, proven method for
the early detection of pregnancy. The test can be quickly performed at any time pregnancy is suspected. Highly sensitive, the Aim MidStream Professional OTC test can detect pregnancy as early as one day after a missed period or approximately one week
(8-12 days) after the moment of conception.
Similar to most one-step at home hCG pregnancy tests, the Aim Professional OTC midstream pregnancy test utilizes a combination of monoclonal and polyclonal antibody reagents to selectively detect elevated levels of the hCG hormone in urine.
The test device contains monoclonal hCG colored conjugate and polyclonal anti-hCG coated on a membrane test area. By capillary action, the urine sample migrates over the test area and reacts with the impregnated reagents to form visible colored bands in the test window. The presence of hCG hormone in concentrations of
20 mIU/ml or greater will result in the formation of a distinct colored band in the test area thus indicating a positive result for pregnancy. Conversely, if no line appears in the test area, the the test is negative.
eliminates the need for urine sample collection and handling and therefore is preferred by
many women for its ease of use and simplicity. Most OTC brands available in retail stores
utilize the "midstream" method for these reasons. Testing is done by removing
the test from the sealed pouch, removing the cap from the capillary
wick, and holding the wick directly in the urine stream for at least six seconds.
The Aim MidStream Professional OTC incorporates a
unique sealed plastic housing over the visual test result windows eliminating
the possibility of inadvertent test contamination through exposure of these
sensitive development areas. The
protective cap is then returned to its position over the wick and the test device is
placed on a flat surface. The automatic capillary action can then be observed as the test
develops. Test results will appear in approximately one (1) to (3) minutes. Test results
should never be interpreted after five (5) minutes.
results simulate the graphic on the
right. The control line (C) on the right always appears and indicates the
test is working properly. The test (T) line appears if the test is positive. Any
appearance of a line in the test (T) area, even very faint, indicates a positive test
result. A positive test should always be confirmed with a healthcare provider.
