BIOHIT UFT 300 H. pylori Quick Test brochure

Biopsy specimens taken from the gastric mucosa are tested immediately. The development of colour in the test reagent within 5 minutes indicates whether urease enzyme is present in the biopsy sample or not. H. pylori produces a large amount of urease, which degrades urea to ammonia (NH4+). The formed ammonia is detected by an indicator colour present in the reagent.

With speed and accuracy the UFT300 H. pylori Quick Test enables endoscopists to complete reports and deliver results directly to their patients during the Gastroscopy procedure.

Point of care testing is simple and cost effective with the UFT300 H. pylori Quick Test: improve consistency and accuracy, avoid unnecessary admin and report editing, and enhance the quality of service.

Biopsy testing could not be easier
Using the Biohit H. pylori UFT300 quick test is effortless. The biopsy specimen is placed into the test plate, one drop of reagent is added and the plate is shaken for 5 seconds. If H. pylori urease is present in the specimen a pink/magenta colour develops in the plate. Interpretation of the indicator colour is simple and does not require any specialist training.

Clinical background

Helicobacter pylori infection is the most important cause of chronic gastritis. Another mechanism for gastritis and severe atrophic gastritis is the autoimmune mechanism, which can also be triggered by an H. pylori infection. This kit is intended to aid in the diagnosis of H. pylori infection.
Helicobacter pylori is a spiral shaped, gram-negative bacterium that colonizes the human stomach. The organism is found in the mucous layer of the stomach overlying the gastric epithelium and it does not appear to invade tissue. However, the mucosa underneath the area of the H. pylori colonization is invariably inflamed; this condition is referred to as chronic superficial or non-atrophic gastritis, which, if untreated, persists for life. Nevertheless, the chronic inflammatory process can lead to atrophic gastritis, which has been linked with peptic ulceration and gastric cancer, two of the most important diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
The epidemiological evidence of a link between H. pylori infection and gastric adenocarcinoma or mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma has resulted in classification of the organism as a group I carcinogen.
