Pregnancy Tests: Midstream, Cassette, Strip Pregnancy Tests
Were you successful this month? Will you have a new baby in nine month's time? At TestCountry we are proud to offer the highest accurate and reliable pregnancy test kits in the market.
Our Home Pregnancy Tests are clinically proven to be as safe, effective and greater than 99% accurate as similar pregnancy tests administered by doctors, hospitals and health clinics at the convenience of your home. TestCountry.com's pregnancy tests detect the hormone hCG at the 20mIUs level. In the pregnancy testing market, 20mIUs level is the lowest which means the most sensitive. You can find out whether or not you are pregnant in just 6-7 days after conception.
We carry three formats of early-detection pregnancy tests:
Mid-Stream Pregnancy Tests: Our midstream pregnancy tests are the easiest to use- the midstream can be used right in the urine stream and there is no need to measure a sample
Cassette Pregnancy Tests: Our pregnancy cassette tests are easy-to-use, and extremely sensitive for earliest detection of pregnancy - This format is primarily used by medical professionals who wish to write on the test. There is a patient ID platform on each cassette for writing. There is also a plastic window on the cassette that protects against moisture and other contaminants
Dipstrip Pregnancy Tests: Our pregnancy test strips are easy-to-use, and extremely sensitive for earliest detection of pregnancy. These are the most affordable ones in the market.

A pregnancy test kit is a very simple strip that lets you know your pregnancy status by testing your urine. It works by detecting the presence of hCG i.e. human chorionic gonadotrophin, a glycoprotein hormone which is secreted by the developing placenta shortly after implantation in uterus wall. hCG can be detected in the urine and serum of pregnant women as early as 6 to 15 days after conception. Various hCG rapid test kits are available which use both monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies for qualitative detection of elevated levels of hCG in urine samples. These kits are often sensitive to certain fixed levels and are pretty specific as the immunological specificity of the antibodies used virtually eliminates cross reactivity with structurally related hormones.
Common Tests During Pregnancy
Various tests may be needed to detect chromosomal and genetic disorders as well as to ensure healthy growth of the fetus inside the mother’s womb. Especially when the mother has a background medical history, doctors strongly recommend prenatal test and monitoring. On the onset of pregnancy, laboratories subject mothers into alpha-fetoprotein to test the level of protein in the blood. Another option is amniocentesis which involves testing the sample of fluid surrounding the fetus known amniotic. Both detect chromosomal disorders in the fetus ahead of time such as neural tube defects and spina bifida. In the later weeks of pregnancy, laboratories test for glucose tolerance and monitor fetal condition. Glucose tolerance test determines the fetus risk’s to gestational diabetes. Fetal monitoring uses Doppler device to monitor the fetus heart beat. Normal heart rate should result to 116 to 160 bpm.
