The LH Ovulation Cassette Test is a qualitative immunoassay for the detection of human Luteinizing Hormone (hLH) in human urine to predict the occurrence of ovulation. Ovulation is regulated by the elevation of hLH. Usually, around 14 days before the period starts, hLH increases significantly -“LH surge”. The hLH surge triggers the release of an egg or eggs for the ovary. Statistics have shown that conception is most likely to occur within 36 hours following the LH surge. Therefore, the hLH surge is an ideal indicator for predicting ovulation. Having a sensitivity of 20 mIU/mL the Instant-View® tests can detect LH (ovulation) surges 14 days before period starts and are >99% accurate.
