ADEXUS Dx is a next generation whole blood hCG test. ADEXUS Dx is indicated as an aid for health care professionals in the diagnosis of early pregnancy.
ADEXUS Dx can detect hCG in a single drop of whole blood, serum, or plasma sooner than urine-based hCG tests*, without additional reagents or materials. ADEXUS Dx is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay that delivers results in only 10 minutes.
* Based on our cutoff, pregnancy can be detected at 10 mIU/mL. Depending on the woman and the pregnancy, this can be days earlier than urine-based hCG tests.
1. Capillary Blood Sensitivity >99% compared to clinically confirmed pregnancy diagnosis Capillary Blood Specificity >99% compared to clinically confirmed non-pregnant women.
2. In a March 2015 report in Clinical Chemistry, Robert N. Nerenz and Ann M. Gronowski detailed their evaluation of 11 common POC hCG urine-based devices and determined that 9 of the 11 were susceptible to false-negative results.
