H. Pylori Rapid Test (Serum & Whole Blood ) description:

The One Step H. pylori Serum and whole blood Rapid Test is a rapid lateral flow, qualitative immunoassay. It is intended for use at point of care facilities to detect the presence of IgG antibodies specific to Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in human blood or serum. It provides an aid in the diagnosis of infection by H. pylori.

1. 25 H. Pylori Rapid Test devices
each sealed in a pouch with a dropper pipette
2. Wash buffer, 7 ml
3. Instruction for use

Materials required but not provided:
1. Lancet or other blood collection device
2. Clock or timer

H. Pylori Rapid Test kit Background Information
Helicobacter pylori has been associated with a variety of gastrointestinal diseases including gastritis, duodenal and gastric ulcer, non-ulcer dyspepsia, gastric adenocarcinoma and lymphoma. The exact role that H. pylori plays in gastrointestinal disease still needs to be precisely defined and is the subject of ongoing research. However, the prevalence rates for H. pylori infection as demonstrated by histological and bacteriological methods can approach 90% in patients who present clinical symptoms of the gastrointestinal diseases. H. pylori does not appear to invade the bloodstream since no isolates yet have been detected using commercial blood culture methods. H. pylori infections occur in human populations throughout the world. In developed countries, about 50% of the population may have H. pylori infection by the age of 60 years, while only 10-20% of adults in the third decade of life have it. In patients who present clinical symptoms relating to the gastrointestinal tract there are two major methods of investigation: invasive and noninvasive. Invasive methods include culture of gastric biopsy samples, histologic examination of stained biopsy specimens, or direct detection of the urease activity in the biopsy (CLO test). Noninvasive techniques include urea breath tests and serological methods. Serologic tests are employed to detect antibodies as human immune response to H. pylori. Two methods appear to be of great interest regarding their use in H. pylori routine serology, namely the ELISA and the Western immunoblot because they offer the most versatility in regards to immunoglobulin specificity and relative ease of use. This H. pylori Rapid Test detects IgG antibodies specific to H. pylori infection in patient blood or serum. It is a noninvasive method and does not use radioactive isotopes; the assay procedures are easy and do not require professional training; it provides a rapid result. It is a useful on-site aid in the diagnosis of H. pylori infection.

H. Pylori Rapid Test Principle
This assay is a double antigen chromatographic lateral flow immunoassay. The test strip in the device includes a burgundy-colored conjugate pad containing colloidal gold coupled with H. pylori antigens and nitrocellulose membrane containing a test line (T line) and a control line (C line). The T line is coated with H. pylori antigens, and the C line is coated with goat anti-H. pylori antibody. The antigens used in this device are from H. pylori cell lysate. When IgG antibodies specific to H. pylori are present in the specimen, the T line will become a burgundy-colored band. If antibodies to H. pylori are not present or are present below the detectable level, no T line will develop. The C line should always appear as a burgundy-colored band regardless of the presence of antibodies to H. pylori. The C line serves as an internal qualitative control of the test system to indicate that an adequate volume of specimen has been applied and the flow occurred. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.

Notable features of H. pylori Rapid Test:
-Reliable and inexpensive
-Convenient and easy-to-understand directions
-Clear preparation procedures
-Simple and safe specimen collection directions
-Comprehensive package of required materials and components
-Rapid and accurate test results

See H. pylori Rapid Test Product Insert for specific details on preparation, procedures, quality control, and interpretation of test results.

H. Pylori Rapid Test Results Interpretation
The result is positive if both the C line and T line appear, indicating that the IgG antibodies specific to H. pylori are detected. If only the C line appears in the control region, the test indicates that no antibodies to H. pylori are detected and the result is negative. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.

H. Pylori Rapid Test Kit Performance Characteristics
Sensitivity and Specificity:
This device was evaluated with 296 confirmed clinical serum specimens, 144 were positive and 152 were negative. All the specimens were blind labeled. The sensitivity of this device was calculated to be 95.1% (137/144) and the specificity to be 94.1% (143/152).
Cross Reactivity:
Other closely related microorganisms were evaluated for cross reactivity with the test. Proteins of those microorganisms were spiked into the H. pylori positive and negative specimens at a high
concentration and tested separately. None of the microorganisms affected the test results positive or negative.
No interference was found with Common Biological Analytes. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
