Helicobacter pylori

Streamlined evaluation for an easier experience

As the main cause of peptic ulcer disease and a major risk factor for gastric cancer, Helicobacter pylori, or H. pylori, requires treatment to prevent life-threatening medical conditions. Timely diagnosis is critical for improving outcomes and avoiding further harm. However, the rising prevalence of antimicrobial resistance presents a clinical challenge to physicians when deciding who to test and the best medication to treat bacterial infection.

Helicobacter pylori

Our H. pylori assay provides a streamlined solution to the challenge of diagnosing and treating the infection by evaluating for both the bacteria and antimicrobial resistance through one noninvasive test. Especially suited for children, our assay is the only clinically available test of its kind and uses a single stool specimen to predict clarithromycin resistance.

Key testing


  • Uses polymerase chain reaction to interrogate the three 23S ribosomal RNA gene mutations most often associated with clarithromycin resistance.
  • Enables results that can aid clinicians in determining the best therapy for eradicating H. pylori in each child.
  • Promotes antimicrobial stewardship.
