Content of the pack

Each pack contains one instruction for use and one checkToP® test packaged in a hermetically sealed aluminium pouch containing one desiccant sachet.

Product specifications

checkToP® is an in vitro diagnostic medical device of class B5.

checkToP® test is not a classical pregnancy test. checkToP® is a low sensitive urinary rapid test for the determination of the hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin) level in urine, to determine the outcome after a previously confirmed Termination of intrauterine Pregnancy (ToP) up to 9 weeks of amenorrhea and miscarriage.

checkToP® is designed to detect urinary hCG levels ≥ 1 000 mIU/mL, which makes it an appropriate device for medical termination of pregnancy follow-up between 10 to 20 days after the first drug intake in medical termination of pregnancy or miscarriage.

The concentration of hCG and ß-hCG in urine are similar to or slightly higher than those of serum 6

Tests with detection limits of 1 000 mIU hCG/mL or higher are usually negative 2 weeks following complete induced abortion 7.

ß-hCG levels drop rapidly under 1 000 IU/L after abortion 8

Disappearance curves of serum ß-hCG

How to use

The test must be performed after Termination of Pregnancy at a time indicated by your gynaecologist, usually between 10 to 20 days after:

• the first drug intake in medical abortion
• miscarriage

Always read the instruction leaflet carefully before testing.
• Remove the checkToP® test device from the aluminium foil pouch. Discard its small sachet
• Remove the cap and either:

Hold the absorbent tip directly in your urine stream for 5-10 seconds. Take care no urine enters the test.

Or collect your urine in a clean and dry container and dip the absorbent tip into the urine for at least 5 to 10 seconds in order for it to be completely soaked.

• Replace the cap on the test device.
Lay the test device on a dry flat surface with the two windows facing up.

Wait between 5 to 10 minutes to read the test results. Between 5 to 10 minutes a line will appear in the control window (the smaller window).

Important: Do not read before 5 minutes or after 10 minutes.

Within 5 to 10 minutes, your results will be displayed in the windows. The results read as follows.

Negative test result: Your ToP is confirmed

If only one pink colored band appears in the control window (the smaller window) and no band appears in the test window (the largest window), the test is negative. Termination of Pregnancy or miscarriage is confirmed.

Positive test result: Your ToP is not confirmed

If two pink colored bands appear within 10 minutes, one in each window, the test is positive.
Your hCG level may be above 1000 mIU/mL. This could mean that the treatment for Termination of Pregnancy may not have worked or is not complete, or that miscarriage has not occurred.

In any case you should consult your physician.
Note: One band can be darker than the other. The two bands can be any shade of pink-purple and can be lighter or darker than the control. However, you should see two clear parallel bands.

Inconclusive test results: Repeat your test in 24 hours


The test is inconclusive if there is no coloured band in the control window, with or without a band in the test window.
It is recommended to repeat the test with a new checkToP® on a fresh urine sample obtained 24 hours after the inconclusive test.

Questions & answers

When a woman becomes pregnant, her body begins to produce a hormone, human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), which is excreted in the urine where its concentration rises over time. The checkToP® test uses a pair of antibodies specifically detecting the hCG hormone in urine to check whether the hormone level is 1000 mIU/mL (determined against W.H.O.* reference) or greater. If treatment for Termination of Pregnancy has been effective or miscarriage has occurred, then the hCG level should drop below 1000 mIU/mL within 10 to 20 days. checkToP® will not detect hCG levels lower than 1000 mIU/mL while classical pregnancy tests will be positive.

*World Health Organisation

Yes, we recommend testing checkToP® on the first morning urine as it should be more concentrated.

Yes, a high fluids intake may dilute the urine and make the hCG detection more difficult. Abnormal fluid intake is therefore not recommended.

If you are unable to determine whether or not a line is present in the oval test window, repeat the test after 1 day with a new checkToP® test.

If you follow the instructions, you should get accurate results. Certain drugs which contain hCG or that are used in combination with hCG (such as Pregnyl®, Profasi®, Pergonal®) and rare medical conditions may give a false positive result. Alcohol, analgesics, antibiotics, birth control pills, hormone therapies containing clomiphene citrate (such as Clomid®, Serophen®) or painkillers should not affect the test result.

You must follow the advice given by the medical staff managing you.

If you read the test before 5 minutes, you may not give the test enough time to work, and the test result may not be accurate. DO NOT INTERPRET the results if 10 minutes have elapsed after having brought the absorbent tip into contact with urine.

The checkToP® is very accurate and has been used by health care professionals to confirm the success of Medical Termination of Pregnancy up to 9 WA (hospitals and laboratories). Evaluation reports show that checkToP® can detect hCG above 1000mIU/ mL in over 99% of cases3. No test is perfect and even if the test is negative, you should still contact your health care provider if you have symptoms of pregnancy such as no or limited bleeding, no period at the expected time, tender breasts, feeling sick, or tummy growing.

Yes but checkToP® is not able to detect very early pregnancies and only shows positive if the hCG hormone is more than 1000 mIU/mL.

Other pregnancy tests are more sensitive and give a positive result starting from 5 to 25 mIU/mL.
