Thermo Scientific H.pylori Test Aids in Rapid Diagnosis of Gastrointestinal Disorders
A recent report suggests that Helicobacter pylori infection increases the risk of upper gastrointestinal bleeding in individuals taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) . As scientists continue to associate Helicobacter pylori with a growing number of gastrointestinal disorders, a test from Thermo Scientific offers a valuable aid in the rapid diagnosis of infection with this micro-organism.
The Thermo Scientific Pylori Test is a rapid latex agglutination test for the detection of H. pylori antibodies in serum, providing clearly visible results in less than 3 minutes. This simple method is quick and non-invasive, providing clinicians with valuable information prior to patient endoscopy. A positive result indicates current or recent infection with H. pylori and may influence the choice of treatment and the next course of action.
