Interpretive

Reference Range:Negative indicates no rupture of fetal membranes.
Limitations:Interrupted leakage with minimal residual fluid or samples taken 12 hours or later after rupture may lead to false negative results. AmniSure should not be used earlier than 6 hours after the removal of any disinfectant solutions or medications from the vagina. Placenta previa, performing digital exams and contaminants such as KY Jelly, anti-fungal creams, baby powder, etc. may lead to inaccurate results. When there is a significant presence of blood on the swab, the test can malfunction and is not recommended. In cases of only trace amounts of blood on the swab, the test still functions properly.
Use:Detection of amniotic fluid in vaginal secretions of pregnant women.
