55869-2Choriogonadotropin.beta subunit [Mass/volume] in Serum or PlasmaActive

Part Description

LP14329-4   Choriogonadotropin.beta subunit
The presence of the Choriogonadotropin beta subunit (B HCG) in plasma or serum shortly after conception followed by its rapid rise in concentration makes it an excellent marker for confirmation and monitoring of pregnancy. Used only for pregnancy testing. HCG done at 16-20 weeks of pregnancy for the purpose of finding a M.O.M. value and to determine risk of a defect in the fetus. Source: Regenstrief Institute
