Tests for the detection of H.pylori antigens as well as for transferrin

One-step immunochromatographic tests for the qualitative detection of transferrin and H.pylori antigens in human faeces.

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a gram-negative bacteria that lives in the human gastric epithelium. Infection with this microorganism is very common, with an estimated prevalence of 28-84% depending on the population studied. This infection causes inflammation of the gastric mucosa and can lead to complications such as chronic gastritis, peptic/duodenal ulcer, lymphoid tissue lymphoma and gastric adenocarcinoma.

Several international guidelines for the management of H. pylori infection, such as the EHSG, emphasise the importance of early diagnosis and treatment for the prevention of the aforementioned complications, particularly gastric cancer. On the other hand, transferrin is a marker for bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract, which could indicate advanced injury from this or other bacteria.

Simple/Stick H.pyl* and Simple H.pyl-Tf are non-invasive rapid tests that can identify both active H.pylori infection and the presence of bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract quickly, safely, easily, affordably and reliably. They are therefore considered excellent tools to facilitate early diagnosis of the patient. They are also useful for confirming post-treatment eradication of H.pylori infection.

Both tests are excellent tools for rapid, non-invasive screening, allowing healthcare staff to manage patients quickly and cost-effectively, avoiding more invasive tests or antibiotics if unnecessary. They can also be used to confirm eradication of H.pylori after antibiotic treatment.

Possibility of automated reading with OPERON immunochromatography strip reader. Interpretation of results on these products can be done both visually and automated, thus minimising the possibility of error and allowing results to be recorded.

Products adapted to rapid and urgent point-of-care or POC diagnostics, with results in maximum 15 minutes, minimal handling and contact with the sample by the professional performing the test and with all components ready for use.

Control devices are available to the user to validate the results obtained. They can be purchased as a stand-alone commercial reference.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    No. Both tests are designed for use by healthcare professionals only.

    It is not recommended to use samples with preservation agents (such as formalin, PBS, PVA or similar) or enrichment media, as their presence could interfere with the correct performance of the tests.

    It is recommended to test fresh untreated samples. If they have to be stored for a period of time, they can be kept in the refrigerator (+2-8°C) for 1 to 3 days. For longer periods, they should be frozen at -20°C (ideally after collection).
