H Pylori Breath Testing

Helicobacter pylori Urea Breath Test, BreathTek™ UBT, Ubit
$179.00
Sample Report
Specimen Type: Breath

Description:

This test is used to detect the presence of Helicobacter Pylori, a bacterium which is found in the stomach and may contribute to the development of Chronic Gastritis, ulcers, and in some cases Stomach Cancer.  This test requires people to provide a breath sample before and after drinking a solution which will react to the presence of H Pylori bacteria by releasing carbon dioxide. 

The H Pylori Breath Test may be more accurate than a blood test which screens for antibodies when being used to determine the effectiveness of treatment for an H Pylori infection or in the diagnosis of infection for people who have experienced previous infections with H Pylori. 

Note: This test is for Adults only. The performance characteristics for this test have not been established for individuals younger than 18.

The H Pylori Breath test cannot be performed at all lab locations.  Please check to verify if your preferred lab location is able to perform this test.  Turnaround time for this test is typically 3-4 business days.   

Requirements:

Note: This test is for Adults only. The performance characteristics for this test have not been established for individuals younger than 18.

This test requires fasting for one hour prior to testing.  People ordering this test should not take antimicrobials, proton pump inhibitors, or bismuth preparations within two weeks prior to testing.  At the time of testing, people will give a breath sample.  They will then drink a solution provided by a lab attendant and wait about fifteen minutes before giving a second breath sample.
