How Does This Test Detect Helicobacter Pylori?

The test measures how many H pylori antigens are present in your stool. The level of antigens shows how much your immune system is currently fighting H pylori.

Someone is considered positive for H Pylori bacteria infection if the antigen level is above 20ng/mL.

If you score under 20ng/mL, then you're considered negative. But, some people may still seek treatment if they score just below 20ng/mL...especially if they have other symptoms that suggest an H pylori infection.

Why Is The Stool Antigen H Pylori Test The Preferred Test Method?

There are 3 reasons why this test is medically useful:

  1. It's easy to do
  2. It's non-invasive
  3. It's extremely accurate

Also, because the test gives granular data (eg. 23.87 ng/mL), it can be easier to judge the effectiveness of treatments.

How Does The Test Kit Work?

The test kit contains 4 things:

  1. Stool collection bag
    • This collection bag fits over the toilet to collect the stool sample clean and hygienically.
    • In the case of loose stools, a different collection method should be requested. Please request it after purchase.
  2. Collection vial + scooper
    • You just need to collect 1 single sample for this test. A scooper attached to the lid of the vial makes it easy and hygienic.
  3. Ice packs
    • After collection, you put the vial back in the box. Then you place it in the freezer overnight, alone with these mini-ice packs.
  4. Free prepaid return shipping label
    • After the samples, use our free return shipping label. This return shipping label activates our tracking system to give you accurate estimates of when your test results will be ready, based on your package's shipping status.
