What is the R line on a Clinitest hCG

Answered By: Gavin Russell Date: created: Nov 27 2022

A pink-colored line at the reference region (R), the area between the control line region and the test line region has been adjusted to a level approximating 25 mIU/mL hCG. Absence of a pink-colored line in the test line region indicates a negative result.

Pregnancy Test Instructions Instructions for using your pregnancy tests If you miss a period, please take a pregnancy test. We have given you two pregnancy tests for this purpose. If you need additional pregnancy tests, please contact us by phone or email. When you have a POSITIVE PREGNANCY TEST, please CONTACT US TO SCHEDULE YOUR ULTRASOUND. You can call us at 919-843-8246, or email us at, How To Read Crt Pregnancy Test Instructions:

Remove the plastic cap to expose the absorbent window. Point the absorbent tip (with 5 small openings) directly into the urine stream. Take the sample for at least 7-10 seconds, to ensure that an adequate sample is collected by the testing device. (Another technique is to collect the urine into a clean container and dip half of the absorbent pad for at least 10 seconds.) Re-cap the device and place it horizontally on a clean, flat surface. Wait 5 minutes for the test to finish processing.

RESULT INTERPRETATION Negative Result: NOT PREGNANT Only one color band appears on the top Control (C) region. There should be no apparent band on the Test (T) region. The control line is designed to validate the test and should be crisp and clear in intensity against the white background. Positive Result: POSSIBLE PREGNANCY Distinct and consistent color bands appear on the Control (C) and Test (T) regions. Color intensity of the bands may vary according to concentration and level of hCG development. The test line is usually slightly weaker in intensity in comparison to the control line.

The pattern of increasing intensity of the test line is a much better predictor of pregnancy rather than any individual reading. Invalid Results If there is no visible control line, discard the test. Repeat test with a new device. STORAGE Store pregnancy tests at normal room temperature, between 36°F and 86°F.

Discard unused pregnancy tests after the expiration date, which is stamped on each sealed pregnancy test. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, moisture, heat, and other related conditions. DISPOSAL Urine samples and used test devices are potentially infectious, so please keep them away from direct contact with objects.

Is a line on C and T positive?

One coloured line should be in the control line region (C), and another coloured line should be in the test line region (T). Two lines, one next to C and one next to T, even faint lines, show the test is positive.

What does a hCG pregnancy test look like positive

Answered By: Christopher Brown Date: created: Nov 15 2022

Negative Pregnancy Test – If you are not pregnant, a single window test would only show the single test line. For two-window tests, the first window would show the test line and the second window would show a single line that looks like a minus (-) symbol.

How do you know if the pregnancy test strip is positive

Answered By: Julian Bennett Date: created: Mar 01 2024

READING THE RESULT – POSITIVE RESULT If two coloured lines appear on the test strip, you are pregnant. One line may appear lighter than the other, but they will both be the same thickness. A faint line is more likely to occur when you are testing early and your hCG levels are low.

  • See Questions 5 and 7 in the frequently asked questions.
  • NEGATIVE RESULT If only one coloured line appears on the test strip this is a negative result and you are either not pregnant or you may have tested too early.
  • If you are unsure repeat the test in 48 hours with a new test strip.
  • See Questions 6 and 7 in the frequently asked questions.

INVALID RESULT If no lines appear anywhere on the test strip or if only the test line appears, the test has not worked properly and is invalid. This is usually due to the strip not being wet enough. Repeat the test with a new test strip ensuring that the strip is immersed in the urine sample for the full 10 seconds. How To Read Crt Pregnancy Test

Would it be two lines on a hCG test if your not pregnant?

4. Confusing Evaporation Lines – If the pregnancy test instructions were not followed precisely, sometimes an evaporation line can be mistaken for a positive. Many tests show two lines when hCG is detected and one line when hCG isn’t detected, or a plus or minus sign.

  1. For the line tests, sometimes, a faint-colored second line appears.
  2. This may represent an early pregnancy or may simply be an evaporation line.
  3. If you read the test after the recommended time in the instructions, the results might be a false-positive since the evaporation line may show up more clearly.

Avoid any confusion by following the test’s timing directions exactly as they’re written. Each test brand has specific instructions, so follow them closely.

Which line is the hCG line on a First Response pregnancy test?

How Does a Pregnancy Test Work? – For a quick primer, at-home pregnancy tests check your urine for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone, or hCG, which ramps up quickly in your body after fertilization. The lines on a pregnancy test develop color if hCG is detected. An at-home First Response™ pregnancy test works like this:

Special reagents are deposited at 2 locations on a pregnancy test strip, forming the “control line” and the “test line.” These test reagents may appear as off-white/slightly gray lines on the test strip – before or after use. In a First Response™ pregnancy test, these reagents are gold nanoparticles, which appear pink in color. They are responsible for turning the lines pink once the test is used. If no hCG is detected in your urine, only the control line will appear pink colored. If hCG is present in the urine, both the test line and control line will appear pink. Two pink lines indicate a positive result, even if one line is fainter than the other.

Some tests, like First Response™ Early Result Pregnancy Tests, are very sensitive and can detect lower levels of hCG so you can test as early as 6 days sooner.*
