Self-monitoring tests such as home pregnancy tests (HPTs) and ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) are widely available in local drugstores and pharmacies. However, the price of tests sold in stores is considerably inflated due to product resale turnover, transportation, and large overhead of the traditional retailing system supporting dozens of employees. Product marketing and packaging also raises the cost of tests sold in retail outlets.
The HPTs and OPKs that I sell are considerably cheaper because I don't operate with a lot of overhead, and the tests come with minimal packaging. However, despite their low price, you can rest assured that these tests are very sensitive and accurate.
The tests are bulk-packaged in original factory condition with no modifications, and they come with easy-to-use instructions. These products are made in Canada from US imported raw materials - hence being truly North American in origin! The shelf life of the tests is 2 years (an expiry date is stamped on each test), even though it has still shown great quality far beyond that. You are purchasing products with maximum expiry dates, rather than the products sitting in warehouses and aging on the retail shelves.
The test sold on this site are a no-name brand, and they possess 510k US FDA, Health Canada, Export Licenses, and Medical Device Licenses.
One Step HCG Urine Pregnancy Tests are used for qualitative (visual) determination of hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) in urine specimens for early detection of pregnancy. HCG is a glycoprotein hormone secreted by developing placenta shortly after implantation. hCG can be detected in urine and serum of pregnant women as early as 6 to 15 days after conception reaching concentration of 5-50 mIU/mL (milli International Units per milli Liter).
These tests are specifically designed for professional users (doctors, clinics, family planning centres) for determination of early pregnancy. Tests detect hCG in urine in a qualitative format with sensitivity of 20mIU/mL (International Standard Value). The test line is responsive in the range of 10-50 mIU producing a line directly proportional to concentration of hCG in urine. The specificity is 99.9% meaning that test is highly selective for hCG glycoprotein. Tests have an expiry date of 2 years and can be stored in a dry environment ranging from 2 to 30 degrees Celsius. The products are manufactured in ISO 9001 facility and posses Health Canada and US FDA 510k clearance. These product performance statistics have earned an international reputation for quality and reliability, and are distributed in over 70 countries worldwide.
