Urease Hp

Endosc-Hp® Test

A Quick Helicobacter pylori Urease Test

  • Accurate
  • Simple
  • Quick
  • Low Cost
  • High Value

Intended Use

The test detects the urease enzyme of Helicobacter pylori present in gastric mucosal biopsies.

Principle

The Endosc-Hp® Test consists of a twin well cartridge containing urea, phenol red and buffer salts when reconstituted, and a buffer. If the urease enzyme of Helicobacter pylori is present in a biopsy specimen, the rise in pH associated with the hydrolysis of urea causes a change in colour from yellow to pink/red. The colour change indicates a positive reaction and confirms the presence of Helicobacter pylori.

Features

Accurate - Studies show good correlation and specificity of >98% and sensitivity of >93%.

Simple - Buffer added to reconstitute substrate, sample added, colour change result. Procedures for taking a gastric biopsy remain unchanged and unaffected.

Quick - Positive test results can be gained within 30mins for immediate action.

Low Cost - Diagnosing Helicobacter pylori at endoscopy is the low cost option in comparison to other diagnostic tests.

High Value - It is extremely difficult to diagnose Helicobacter pylori related gastritis by endoscopy alone. This simple test enhances the effectiveness of outcome.
