Catalog Ref. 20090

Helicobacter pylori is a gastroduodenal pathogen, the etiological agent of diseases such as peptic ulcer and gastritis, also described as a risk factor in the onset of gastric cancer. Accurate detection of H. pylori in the feces of infected patients is of considerable importance, in particular for very young paediatric patients, who should preferentially be investigated by noninvasive methods. Given their availability, feces can be a convenient sample for the detection of H. pylori .

An antimicrobial agents combination inhibits the contaminating flora allowing the selective growth of H. pylori . The detection is based on the urease activity, showed by the color change of the broth from yellow to red-fuchsia.
