Inverness Medical offers enhanced point-of-care diagnostic tests for women’s health

Inverness Medical Innovations : 14 November, 2007  (New Product)
Healthcare professionals are able to deliver fast, accurate and reliable results with Inverness Medical’s enhanced Clearview Women’s Health product portfolio.
Using patented, innovative technologies, Clearview offers a wide range of point-of-care diagnostic tests that include Clearview HCG, EASY HCG, hCG Combo, EASY LH and Careplan VpH Test Glove. These simple one-step tests have demonstrated proven efficiency in clinics, hospitals and laboratories, and their speed and accuracy makes Clearview products ideal for emergency treatment rooms.

Clearview HCG and Clearview EASY HCG accurately detect the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) in urine at levels as low as 25 mlU/ml, with proven accuracy of >99 percent. Clearview EASY HCG offers greater flexibility with four easy sampling procedures. In addition, Clearview hCG Combo offers fast, high-sensitivity detection of hCG in both urine and serum at levels as low as 25mIU/ml. The sensitivity, specificity and speed of testing enable appropriate action to be taken immediately, which is crucial in an emergency situation.

The Clearview product portfolio also features Clearview EASY LH, a one-step immunoassay for the qualitative detection of a luteinising hormone (LH) surge in urine, which has been shown to precede ovulation by approximately 24 to36 hours. This is an established and effective method in the management of fertility and results can be obtained in three minutes. The information can then be used to time intercourse to help achieve conception, eliminating the need for expensive traditional laboratory methods of testing that require repeated clinic visits.

Inverness Medical has also expanded the range to include the innovative Careplan VpH Test Glove. A test strip is located at the tip of the index finger to allow self-measurement of the pH of the vaginal environment, where increased pH indicates the presence of infections in the vaginal tract. The easy-to-use glove allows threatening infections that can increase the risk of premature birth to be detected and treated as early as possible. Early treatment will greatly improve the health of mother and child, as well as making significant cost savings (Ref 1) to clinical services.

All Clearview diagnostic tests are available in a range of convenient pack sizes, have a long shelf life and can be stored at room temperature.
