The equipment is self-test IVD medical equipment which is intended by the manufacturer for use by lay person in a home environment.For in vitro diagnostic use only.How does it work?Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone, produced by the developing placenta shortly after conception and secreted into the urine. Clicks digital pregnancy test can detect tiny amounts of this hormone in your urine.After a suitable amount of urine sample is applied to the Clicks digital pregnancy test, the test directly displays the results of "pregnant", "not pregnant" or "error" on the display screen. It is an accurate, rapid and convenient method for the early diagnosis of pregnancy.Cap.Absorbent tip.Display screen.Grip.Content of the test kit:1. One pouch containing a Clicks digital pregnancy test and a desiccant. The desiccant is for storage purposes only, and is not used in the test procedures.2. Leaflet with instructions for use.What else do you need?A clean, dry, plastic or glass container for collecting the urine.Performance characteristics:Sensitivity:Clicks digital pregnancy test will detect in urine an HCG concentration of 25 mIU/ml or greater.Specificity:The specificity of the clicks digital pregnancy test was determined from cross-reactivity studies with known amounts of luteinizing hormone (hLH), follicle stimulating hormone (hFSH), and thyroid stimulating hormone (hTSH). Negative results were obtained from all tests conducted with 500 mIU/ml hLH, 1000 mIU/ml hFSH and 1000 μIU/ml hTSH.Questions & answers:1. When should I test with a clicks digital pregnancy test?Normally Clicks digital pregnancy test can be used two days before your expected period.2. Which urine is best for the detection? Any urine specimen is appropriate for pregnancy testing, but the first morning urine specimen is optimal, because of its highest concentration of HCG.3. I have used the test, but the Hourglass symbol has not appeared. What does this mean? The test has not worked correctly. You should repeat the test with a new device or contact the distributor or the store where you bought the product, providing the lot number.4. Identifying whether the power is enough to run a test. Do the test strictly according to the procedure specified in the instructions. If there is no response on the display screen, it indicates that the battery is power off.5. Could any medication or medical conditions affect the result?Always read the manufacturer's instructions for any medication you are taking before conducting the test. Fertility drugs containing HCG can give misleading results. These fertility drugs are usually given by injection, and testing too soon after administration may give a false "pregnant" result. Other fertility therapies, painkillers and hormonal contraceptive (e.g. birth control pills) are unlikely to affect the result.If you are in, or approaching menopause, you may obtain a false positive result, even though you are not pregnant.Ectopic pregnancy and ovarian cysts can give misleading results.If you get unexpected results you should discuss them with your doctor.6. What should I do when my test says I'm pregnant?If your result is "pregnant", you should see your doctor who can advise you on what steps you should take next.7. What should I do when my test says I'm not pregnant? You may not be pregnant or the level of pregnancy hormone may not yet be high enough to be detected, or you may have miscalculated the day your period is due. If you tested early, test again when your period is due. If your period is overdue, test again within 7 days. If this test gives you a "not pregnant" result and you still have not had your period, see your doctor to eliminate any gynecological ailments.8. Can the device be used repeatedly?No. This device is for single use only.Bibliography:1. Canfield RE, Morgan FJ, Kammerman S, Bell JJ, Agosto GM. Studies of human chorionic gonadotropin.

As it is with any diagnostic procedure, a confirmed pregnancy diagnosis should only be made by a physician after evaluating all clinical and laboratory findings.2. The device is only suitable for human urine.3. If a urine sample is too diluted (i.e., low specific gravity) it may not contain a representative level of HCG. If pregnancy is still suspected, another urine specimen should be collected 48 hours later and re-tested.4. Low concentration of HCG in a very early pregnancy can give a negative result. In this case, another specimen should be obtained at least 48 hours later and tested.5. Any medical procedure which involves HCG, such as fertility treatment, may cause false positive results. Consult your physician.6. Please note that an unclean container or incorrect operation may also yield a false result.
