An on-line exhibit marking the 25th anniversary of the commercial introduction of the home pregnancy test is now available on the World Wide Web at: http://www.history.nih.gov/exhibits/thinblueline. The exhibit, sponsored by the Office of NIH History, includes a historical timeline of pregnancy testing, portrayals of the pregnancy test in popular culture, and scientific background on the research that led to the development of the test. Visitors to the on-line exhibit will have the opportunity to contribute to the living history of the site by anonymously relating their own experiences with the home pregnancy test.
