Please Note:

Generally, tests rated to detect the lowest hCG levels should be able to detect pregnancy sooner than those rated for a higher level.

The above chart is the manufacturer's claimed sensitivity, not test accuracy. We did not do a laboratory analysis of the tests.

The information above, while believed accurate at the time of publishing, this information is subject to review and updating.

If you have a test to add to the list please do so here.

  • I use SURESIGN early detection one step get 1 of these brilliant 10mIU i found out as early as 3wks
  • Hi, I pinched this off another forum:

    Tesco's Own Brand - (25miu)
    - Has been known to register pregnancy up to 5 days early
    Wilikinson Cheap Tests (25 miu)
    - Do not give very strong positive lines
    Sainsbury Own Brand - (25miu)
    - Good test to use if testing early
    Asda Own Brand - (25miu)
    - Known for giving very convincing evaporation lines. if the second line shows around or after 10 mins its quite probably an evap. but sometimes evaps have apeared straight away...if its faint dont trust it !
    - Not very sensitive
    Boot's Own Brand - (25miu)
    - Quite senstive, good test to use quite early.
    Boot's Digital Own Brand - (50miu)
    - Good digital test to test early with
    Superdrugs Own Brand - (25miu)
    - Notorious for giving out evaporation lines
    - Evaporation lines are in colour
    Ebay Cheapies - (10miu)
    - These seem to give the illusion of a positive pregnancy test, when they seem to bring up lighter evap lines.
    - Best for poas addicts as cheap but should be used for guidence, if you think its a bfp get a better test to confirm
    Clear Blue Digital - (50miu)
    - Not very sensitive
    Clear Blue Digital With Conception Indicator - (50miu)
    - Not the best test to use if you are testing early
    - Very reliable when pregnancy result shown
    Clear Blue With Colour Test Strip - (25miu)
    - ?????
    First Response -(25miu)
    - Best test to use if you are testing early.
    - Do not get evaporation lines
    Predictor Tests (?miu)
    - Expensive to buy, but result lasts forever.

    Not sure it's accurate, but it's got a few UK ones on :\)
  • Slightly different info off another forum........

    IC's usually 10 mIU
    One step High sensitivity - 10 mIU
    Superdrug - 10 mIU
    First Response Early Response - 12 miu
    Sainsbury's own - 15 miu
    Boots own brand - 50 mIU
    Asda cheapies - 25mIU
    Clearblue Digital - 50 mIU

  • I'm a bit dim where this is concerned, What does mIU mean? If a test is 25mIU does that mean it is better than one that is 50 mIU??
  • HCG pregnancy tests determine pregnancy through the detection of the hormone hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) in a woman's urine. In technical terms, hCG is a glycoprotein hormone secreted by the developing placenta shortly after a fertilized egg has implanted in the uterine lining.

    Clinically speaking, HCG is measured in thousandths of International Units, or mIU. Pregnancy tests with a sensitivity of 20 mIU/ml are more sensitive than tests with 50 to 100 mIU/ml. Test brands will display how sensitive their tests are using mIU as the standard unit of measure. Test sensitivity equates with early-detection - and the lower the number, the sooner a test can detect pregnancy. The most sensitive pregnancy tests can detect hCG levels at as low as 20 mIU - or at around 8 days following implantation of the egg.
  • ...and there was me thinking IU stood for 'In Urine' lol
  • this is very interesting....bump!

  • Very interesting MrsFozz, thanks for explaining it to me.
