The CiTEST Pregnancy Test is a reliable and easy-to-use pregnancy test designed for home use by women who suspect they may be pregnant. It’s intended to detect the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone in urine, which is produced during pregnancy. This test provides a qualitative result, indicating whether hCG is present or not.
To perform the test, collect a urine sample in a clean, dry container. Follow the instructions provided with the kit to apply the urine sample to the designated area on the test strip. Within a few minutes, the test will display the result, indicating either a positive or negative result for pregnancy.
It is important to note that this test is for the qualitative detection of hCG and is not intended to measure the exact levels of the hormone. Additionally, the test is most accurate when performed using the first urine of the day, as it typically contains higher concentrations of hCG.
The CiTEST Pregnancy Test provides a convenient and reliable method for women to determine their pregnancy status in the comfort of their own homes. However, it is advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for further confirmation and to discuss prenatal care options.
Remember, the CiTEST Pregnancy Test is designed to provide a straightforward result regarding pregnancy. It serves as a helpful tool for women who suspect they may be pregnant and want to confirm their pregnancy status.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does the test midstream work?
A: The HCG Pregnancy Rapid Test Midstream operates by detecting the presence of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your urine. This hormone is produced by your body during pregnancy, and its levels increase as the pregnancy progresses, making it a reliable indicator of pregnancy.
Q: How soon can I take the test after suspecting pregnancy?
A: You can use the test as early as the first day you miss your period. It is effective in detecting hCG levels indicative of pregnancy at an early stage. While you can perform the test at any time of the day, it is recommended to use your first-morning urine as it is usually the most concentrated, containing the highest levels of the pregnancy hormone.
Q: Is it necessary to use first-morning urine for the test?
A: While it is not mandatory to use first-morning urine, it is generally recommended. Your first-morning urine is typically more concentrated and contains higher levels of hCG, increasing the accuracy of the test results. However, the test can still be performed with urine collected at any time of the day.
Q: How accurate is the test?
A: A thorough clinical evaluation was conducted, comparing the performance of the HCG Pregnancy Rapid Test Midstream to another commercially available urine hCG test. The evaluation involved 608 urine specimens, with both tests correctly identifying 231 positives and 377 negative results. These results indicate that the HCG Pregnancy Rapid Test Midstream has demonstrated over 99% overall accuracy when compared to the alternative urine hCG test, ensuring reliable and dependable results.
Q: How sensitive is the test?
A: The HCG Pregnancy Rapid Test Midstream is highly sensitive and can detect hCG in urine at a concentration of 25 mIU/mL or higher. The test has been standardized against the W.H.O. International Standard, ensuring consistent and accurate results. Importantly, the test has been designed to minimize cross-reactivity, as demonstrated by the lack of interference from substances such as LH (300 mIU/mL), FSH (1,000 mIU/mL), and TSH (1,000 µIU/mL) in negative and positive specimens containing hCG (0 mIU/mL and 25 mIU/mL, respectively).
Q: What should I do if the result indicates that I am pregnant?
A: If the test result indicates the presence of hCG in your urine, it suggests that you are likely pregnant. It is recommended to consult with your doctor to confirm your pregnancy and discuss the necessary steps to take. Your doctor will be able to provide further guidance, answer any questions, and offer appropriate prenatal care to ensure the well-being of both you and your baby.
Q: How can I ensure that the test was performed correctly?
A: A visible colored line in the control line region (C) indicates that you have followed the test procedure correctly and that the appropriate amount of urine has been absorbed. This serves as confirmation that the test was conducted properly.
Q: What should I do if the result indicates that I am not pregnant?
A: If the test result shows no detection of hCG in your urine, it suggests that you are likely, not pregnant. However, if your menstrual period does not start within a week of its due date, it is advisable to repeat the test using a new test midstream. By doing so, you can ensure the most accurate and up-to-date results. If you continue to have concerns or uncertainties, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional for further guidance.
