In vitro diagnostic test strips, based on the principles of immunochromatography, exist for a wide array of target analytes. The first tests were made for the detection of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Today, there are commercially available tests for monitoring ovulation, detecting infectious disease organisms, analyzing drug abuse, and measuring other analytes important to human physiology.
