Amnicator™ is a nitrazine-based test for rapid and easy detection of ruptured membranes during pregnancy. The simple swab test gives a result in less than 5 minutes. A colour change from yellow to blue (nitrazine indicator) indicates the possible presence of amniotic fluid. Each Amnicator™ test is self contained – with the only additional equipment required being a speculum.
A rapid visible negative result can give reassurance to mother, while a positive result indicates further investigation.
Amnicators™ are low cost, convenient to carry, and need no special storage. The nitrazine test is widely used and accepted
