Origins of H. Pylori
H. pylori is a Gram-negative micro-aerophilic bacterium in the stomach. The WHO classifies H. pylori as a Class I carcinogen of gastric cancer. It is the leading cause of gastritis, peptic ulcer disease and MALT – with more than 50% of the world’s population harboring H. pylori in their upper GI tract.

¹³C Urea Breath Test Analyzer + Kit
By utilizing the slight difference between the absorption peak positions of ¹³CO₂ and ¹²CO₂, the Analyzer measures the concentrations of ¹³CO₂ and ¹²CO₂ respectively. It then calculates the variation DOB (‰) of the abundance of ¹³C isotopes over the natural abundance of ¹³C to determine whether the patient has been infected with H. pylori.
1. Take out one baseline breath bag and one post-dose breath bag and fill the patient’s information on the bags.
2. Remove the cap from the mouthpiece of the baseline breath bag, hold one breath and then blow into the bag through the mouthpiece. Try to blow as long and much as you can. Then screw on the cap.
3. Take one C-13 Capsule with 80 – 100ml water and then sit calmly for 20 minutes.
4. Remove the cap from the mouth piece of the post-dose breath bag and then repeat the collection technique used for collecting the baseline sample.
