To achieve these results, this home ovulation testing kit employs a rapid 'sandwich' assay which incorporates two distinct antibodies to detect two separate antigenic sites on the LH molecule: the αLH site and βLH site.
If LH is present in the user's urine, its βLH antigenic site is bound by the anti-βLH antibody that is attached to a particle to form a complex. The urine flows along the test stick to the Surge zone, where the antigenic site on αLH is bound by the Surge Line's immobilized anti-αLH antibodies. This means that the LH/blue particle complex cannot move any further down the test strip, resulting in an intense blue 'Surge Line' which is read by Clearblue's Digital Reader. If the Clearblue Digital Reader detects that the test was completed successfully and that the Surge Line intensity is over a certain threshold, the display will show a 'Surge' result. This indicates that conception is most likely if intercourse occurs during the next 1-2 days.
It is known that many women have small levels of LH present in their urine throughout their cycles. The Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test therefore sets a personalized threshold level for each woman, by measuring their change in LH level from their personal baseline.
Reading the results of traditional line tests can be difficult for users, with as many as one in four people misreading the result from a traditional ovulation test.2 Digital results take away this potential human error and data shows that when compared to traditional line tests, the Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test is more accurately read by consumers.3 A circle with a smiley face means the test has detected the LH surge. Having intercourse during the next 48 hours will maximize the chances of conceiving.
