- The Helicobacter Antigen Test is a screening test. The test is made from a sample of feces taken into a container with a 3-drop dispenser that is applied to the test plate. The test results are read in the form of colored bands within 10 minutes.
Because in most cases H. pylori infection does not produce any symptoms, everyone should regularly, preferably once a year, be screened for prophylaxis. The Helicobacter Antigen Test detects the antigen of the Helicobacter pylori bacteria. The presence of H. pylori antigen in the human body indicates the current infection. Ask your doctor for definitive diagnosis and possible treatment.
