NOW CLOSED Manchester MNers needed to try a new pregnancy test on TUES 31ST JULY - generous cash incentive for attending!

One of the pregnancy test manufacturers (sorry, we can't tell you which one) has asked us to find MNers to try out a new pregnancy test at a trial event they're holding in central Manchester on Mon 30th and Tues 31st July (i.e. this Mon and Tues coming!)

You will need to go along for half an hour during one of the days (Mon 30th or Tues 31st) and POAS (in complete privacy obviously!), as well as providing a urine sample in a pot for a healthcare professional to also do the pregnancy test on. The purpose is to see whether you both get the same results (i.e. whether it's easy for testers to use correctly or not).

As we're sure you can understand with a testing event like this, there are lots of strict criteria for who can take part. We're looking for MNers who are:

~ Aged 18-45 years
~ Pregnant by no more than 8 weeks up to and including Tuesday 31st July
~ Able to spare half an hour to attend an event in a central Manchester location on Mon 30th or Tues 31st July, between 9am and 8pm
~ Willing to take a pregnancy test themselves (POAS) but also supply urine in a pot for a healthcare professional to conduct a second test on. This will all be conducted in complete privacy.
~ Willing to sign a confidentiality agreement on arrival (the product you'll be testing hasn't been launched yet so Mum's the word!)
~ Happy for MNHQ to pass over your name, email, and mobile phone details as well as how many weeks pregnant you are, to the company organising the event.

If you fit the bill, then please do sign up here. We will then pass on your details to the company organising the event and they'll be in touch with you to arrange a half hour slot for you to attend that's convenient for you. When they contact you, they'll be very discreet about what they're calling/emailing about.

Everyone who goes along and takes part will receive a generous cash incentive (more details will be provided on this when you're contacted by the company organising the event) . It's fine to bring along other people with you if you need to, including DCs.

If this isn't for you but you know someone who meets all of the criteria above (or you think they might), then please forward them the link to this thread. They don't have to be a regular MNer to take part.

Any queries, please contact ruth.downs@mccann.com or post them here and we'll try to answer them if we can.

Thanks
MNHQ

Bummer - I'm 23 weeks. How annoying; particularly as I was a total POAS addict!

If you've got anything for already up the duff or about to pop manc mums gisa shout!

Flosshilde Fri 27-Jul-12 17:25:36

Can you give a hint of how much the incentive is? I fit the bill exactly, but would have to do some organising to get there. It needs to be worth my while!

Damn. Can I get 8 weeks pg between now and Monday? grin

RuthlessBaggage Fri 27-Jul-12 18:13:28

I'm confused - if I'm due to poas on Monday but don't yet know if I'm pg, do I qualify?

Flosshilde and RuthlessBaggage - do fill in the form and add in your queries to the any other comments box and we can let you know!
thanks

Flosshilde Fri 27-Jul-12 19:17:37

Done Ann, thanks.

I'm definitely not pregnant can I be the control?!

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 28-Jul-12 20:29:01

Sadly not Paperview....

Thanks to everyone who has applied - we'd love to get a few more folks - do feel free to pass on this link to anyone else you know (whether or not they are members of MN) who fits the bill and would be interested and available.

Do I really have to be pregnant to attend?

Is this not discrimination? Do they not want to see how this new stick work if you are NOT pregnant? Is that not useful information?

confused

QuintessentialShadows - they've been testing it with women who are pregnant and those who aren't. They came to us because they were short of pregnant testers only.

oh well... grin
