Rapid test for Helicobacter pylori detection
UFT300 quick test
Now available is an improved liquid method for H. pylori detection from biopsy samples, the Helicobacter pylori UFT300 quick test. The detection is based on the detection of bacterial urease activity in gastric biopsy specimens. A gastric mucosa colonized by H. pylori is invariably inflamed, and can lead to atrophic gastritis, which has been linked with peptic ulcer and gastric cancer, two of the most important diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract. The quick test is easy to store and perform and results are ready in a few minutes, enabling diagnosis and reporting at the point of gastroscopy.
