ThyroChek, developed by doctors, tests for elevated thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in whole blood. Elevated TSH is the first clinical indicator of hypothyroidism.
ThyroChek is a rapid immunoassay that is easy to use, cost effective and accurate. It is ideal for physician office labs, pharmacy programs and health promotion.
ThyroChek is CLIA waived and may be performed in either waived or moderately complex facilities without special staff training. ThyroChek requires one drop of blood from a finger stick or venous draw. The result is available in 10 minutes.
Two pink lines indicate a positive result - TSH level is greater than 5 mIU/L. This cut-off is the current WHO standard for the indication of hypothyroidism in adults. One pink line indicates a negative result - TSH level is less than 5mIU/L.
