This product is used to qualitatively detect the insulin-like growth factor binding protein -1 (IGFBP-1) in vaginal secretions of pregnant women.
This product adopts the principle of Immunochromatographic assay. The test strip is composed of anti-human insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 monoclonal antibody 1 coated in the detection area (T) of the strip, the anti-mouse polyclonal antibody coated in the control area (C) of the strip and the anti-human insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 monoclonal antibody 2 coated in the colloidal gold. The principle of double antibody sandwich method and immunochromatographic assay is specially aimed at the insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 in human amniotic fluid, so as to provide important reference for the diagnosis of premature rupture of fetal membranes.
