Home test kit for Stomach Ulcers
Check for Peptic Ulcers in just 10 minutes with our accurate, easy to use home test!
Peptic ulcers occur in the stomach and duodenum and in up to 90% of cases they are due to an infection by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). The infection causes inflammation and acid erosion of the lining of the stomach to form ulcers that can result in anaemia and other serious side effects if untreated. UlcerScreen identifies IgG antibodies to H.pylori that result from the infection and indicate the presence of stomach and/or duodenal ulcers currently or in the recent past.
The test is very easy to perform and takes just 10 minutes. It requires a finger prick blood sample that you take using a lancet provided in the kit. The blood sample is transferred to the UlcerScreen test cassette using a micro-pipette provided and after the addition of six drops of buffer solution your result will be shown in 10 minutes. A positive result is given if IgG antibodies to H.pylori are detected.
