With hCG urine test, positive levels (higher than 10 mIU/ml) in the blood can be detected as early as 1 to 2 days after missing a period. The merits of HCG urine pregnancy test kits are: less expensive; can be done at home if only following the testing procedures shown in the instruction leaflet.

ECO Biodegradable HCG Test Kit
Traditionally, the carrier of the rapid test kit is made of plastic, which is causing pollution problems because it is hard to degrade. As a result many countries are taking measures to encourage the development and usage of degradable and environment friendly materials.
As a way to contribute to the global environment protection efforts, also to avoid the potential negative effect on the sales of rapid test kits caused by stricter controlling measures on plastic products, Atlas Link Technology Co., Ltd has started using environment friendly materials in the production of various rapid test kits. And ECO Biodegradable HCG midstream is one important product in line of this effort. Because this hCG cassette is made from sugarcane and bamboo fibers, they are 100% degradable is short time span after using, and is totally environment friendly. It is a good choice if the sales of rapid test kits is affected by the local environment protection measures.
Details of this ECO HCG pregnancy test midstream can be found in the handout for this ECO HCG test kit.
HCG Urine Test Performance
hCG and Pregnancy Test
The hCG level in non-pregnant females is less than 5.0 mIU/ml, which reaches 5-50 mIU/ml three weeks after the last menstrual period, and 2,000mIU/mL a month after conception. The rapid rise of hCG concentration after conception makes it an excellent marker for early confirmation of pregnancy. Following delivery, the hCG normally drops to non-pregnant level within two weeks. Ectopic pregnancies and pregnancies terminating in spontaneous abortion tend to have lower than normal circulating hCG levels, while somewhat higher levels are often seen in multiple pregnancies.
The function of hCG
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is initially secreted by the trophoblastic cells of the placenta shortly after implantation of the fertilized ovum into the uterine wall. This hormone is critical to the viability of the fetus, by preventing the disintegration of the corpus luteum of the ovary and thereby maintaining progesterone production that is critical for a pregnancy in humans; it also affects the immune tolerance of the pregnancy so as the fetus is not rejected by the maternal body.
