A stomach health test for the first-line investigation of dyspepsia

GastroPanel® is a straightforward stomach health test from blood sample and a reliable tool for finding out the status and function of stomach mucosa. GastroPanel test provides doctors with laboratory data to support their clinical decision-making and helps to prioritise patients requiring further gastric investigations. GastroPanel report has been developed to assist doctors in interpreting the test results.

GastroPanel is used as a first-line investigation of adult patients suffering from dyspepsia. It is a particularly useful tool for general practitioners and occupational health doctors, as the results can be used to assess the need for further investigations. GastroPanel is a patient-friendly test that provides an overview of the condition of the gastric mucosa. The results may also serve to motivate the patient to attend further investigations, including a gastroscopy.

What does the GastroPanel test measure?

GastroPanel is a simple bloodtest that can be used to assess the condition of the gastric mucosa and to confirm the diagnosis of hypochlorhydria. GastroPanel will not only identify an H. Pylori infection but will indicate whether the changes in the mucosa are due to a chronic inflammatory condition.

  • Identify patients with healthy gastric mucosa
  • Identify patients requiring gastroscopy
  • Identify patients with achlorhydria and hypochlorhydria
  • Diagnose H. pylori
  • Diagnose atrophic gastritis

GastroPanel will highlight the following risks:

  • Vitamin B12 and other micronutrient deficiencies
  • Peptic and duodenal ulcers
  • Gastric cancer

GastroPanel will provide recommendations on further investigations:

  • Gastroscopy and biopsy
  • Helicobacter eradication treatment
  • Further investigation of malabsorption or anaemia (see: risks)
