Rupture of Membranes Test
Rupture of Membranes Test detects both Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) & Insulin-such as growth factor-binding protein 1 (IGFBP-1) using a monoclonal/polyclonal antibody approach–improving its sensitivity. Timely & perfect diagnosis of PROM help for gestational age-specific interventions designed to reduce the potential risk of complications to both mother and baby.
- Dual Protein Markers: IGFBP-1 & AFP
- IGFBP-1 is detected early in first trimester and “plateaus” throughout the duration of the pregnancy
- AFP is detected at the end of the 2nd trimester/beginning of the 3rd trimester (< 37 weeks) where full confidence is required in the accurate diagnosis
