A test-kit with с 99% isotopically enriched ¹³С-urea for breath-test diagnostics of Helicobacter Pylori. Applies in gastroenterology for identifying Helicobacter Pylori infection, which causes the development of atrophic gastritis, as well as stomach ulcer and cancer. ¹³C-UBT is recognized as the most accurate test for Helicobacter Pylori diagnostics. It is also non-invasive and easy to use.

¹³С-UBT diagnostics informative indicators with Helicarb test:
  • Sensitivity - up to 100%

  • Accuracy - 99%
1 step image
50-75 ml of an aqueous solution of ¹³C-urea is taken orally
2 step image
Entering the stomach, ¹³C-urea is hydrated with the formation of ¹³C-carbon dioxide and ammonia with the participation of the enzyme of the urease of Helicobacter Pylori.
3 step image
¹³C-carbon dioxide from the stomach is absorbed into the bloodstream
4 step image
¹³C-carbon dioxide with inhaled air is excreted from the body through the lungs
