Product Description

Pregnancy Test

The quantitative pregnancy blood test, also called the Beta hCG blood test, measures the amount of hCG in the blood. It can detect even low levels of hCG, possibly giving a positive sooner.

Beta HCG – Human Chorionic Gonadotropin – is a hormone produced during pregnancy which shows up in the blood. It is a blood test to diagnose pregnancy, and usually becomes positive around the time of the first missed period.

Qualitative Beta HCG:

  • A POSITIVE Beta HCG means that the woman is pregnant
  • A NEGATIVE Beta HCG means that the woman is NOT pregnant

Quantitative Beta HCG:

  • The result is given as a number, indicating the measured concentration of the hormone in the blood
  • The fetus is usually visible on a Trans-Vaginal Ultrasound scan when the level is above 1500 units
  • When the level is above 4000 units, the fetus is also usually visible on a Trans-Abdominal Ultrasound scan
  • The Beta HCG level usually doubles approximately every 2 days
