Progesterone FIA Test

Progesterone plays an important role in maintaining pregnancy, preparing the body for conception, and regulating the monthly menstrual cycle. While it’s mainly known as a female hormone, males need progesterone to produce testosterone. When males have low levels of progesterone, they also have low levels of testosterone.

  • Quantitative, non-subjective results
  • Increased sensitivity and broader detection range compared to rapid tests
  1. Range

Working range: 0.30-80.00 ng/mL

  1. Precision

Intra-lot Precision

Intra-lot precision was determined by testing of PROG reference materials using 10 test devices from the same lot. CV ≤ 15%.

Inter-lot Precision

Inter-lot precision was determined by testing of PROG reference materials using 30 test devices from 3 consecutive lots randomly (10 test devices from each lot). CV ≤ 20%.

  1. Accuracy

PROG control materials with two different concentrations were tested by every lot of test device, and the deviations were within ± 15%.

  1. Linearity

A serial concentration of PROG reference materials at 3.00-80.00 ng/mL was tested, and the correlation coefficient (R) is ≥ 0.9900.
