Gonadotropin hCG ELISA kit

REF 22-01

The Gonadotropin hCG ELISA kit is intended for quantitativedeterminationof human chorionic gonadotropinin human serum.

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein consisting of two subunits- alpha and beta. Quantitative measurement of hCG is considered as the most reliable indicator for early diagnostics of pregnancy.

Determination of hCG is used in obstetrics for diagnosing multiple pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy and threatening abortion. Though hCG presence in serum is usually associated with normal pregnancy, increased level of hCG may be also detected in patients with teratogenic carcinomas or throphoblastic neoplasias. Less frequently, hCG concentration is increased in case of ectopic synthesis due to testis, breast, intestinal, lung or prostate cancer. Therefore, measurement of hCG is an important method for diagnostics and monitoring of such diseases.
