The hCG concentration in urine is generally only half the level found in blood serum, and due to varying fluid intakes, considerable deviations may arise in terms of the concentration of hCG in urine. For this reason, the start of a pregnancy can usually only be detected by a urine test several days after it can be detected in blood. And to identify a extra-uterine pregnancy, a combination of vaginal ultrasound and serum hCG detection is advisable.

viola-B is a new pregnancy test which works using just a drop of full blood, i.e. without the necessity of preparing serum. viola-B is thus the first test which enables evaluation of a gynaecology outpatient which is just as reliable as serum analysis in the lab, but with the advantage that the result is available extremely quickly. The minimum detection level of this new test is hCG 20 mIU/mL.
