hCG is an ideal marker for the early detection of pregnancy. In normal pregnancy, hCG levels can be detected in both urine and serum soon after conception1,2,3,4 and rise rapidly during early gestational growth.

Why choose BIONEXIA® hCG Urine or hCG Combo?

BIONEXIA® hCG Urine and BIONEXIA® hCG Combo are extremely easy-to-use. All components necessary to perform the test are included in the kit.
Once the sample is placed into the BIONEXIA® hCG Urine or BIONEXIA® hCG Combo test, results are available in between 3 to 5 minutes depending on the test and sample type.


Reading results is easy since positive results are indicated by 2 red bands (one in the control region and the other in the test region). The absence of the line in the test region indicates a negative result. The control band must always be present (absence indicates an invalid result).
