Healthcare Professionals FAQs
How does AmnioSense™ work?
The test undergoes two steps; firstly the test strip acts as a pH indicator and changes colour on contact with fluid of pH > 6.5. Amniotic fluid has a high pH of more than 6.5.
The test differenciates between amniotic fluid and urine by an innovative combination of the panty liner layers and the chemical formula. When contacted by urine, it usually reverses the pH reaction and reverts the colour back to yellow. It is therefore important to wait the full 15 minutes to interpret the final result.
What are the advantages of using AmnioSense™?
AmnioSense™ has the ability to detect even a small volume of amniotic fluid, over a prolonged period of time (up to 12 hours per liner) and so may assist in avoiding mis-diagnosis of amniotic fluid leakage.
AmnioSense™ provides a non-invasive alternative to other detection methods, with rapid results (in just 15 minutes) and high levels of sensitivity and spectificity.
