Helicobacter pylori Home Test

The Patris Health® Helicobacter pylori Home Test is a blood test for screening an infection with bacteria H. pylori which cause stomach ulcers.

Important: If you have been infected and treated in the past, this test is not for you.

Why? Antibodies against H. pylori can persist in the blood for several years after treated infection; therefore, a result of a serology test can be positive despite you are not infected. On the other hand, if you have never been treated, our H. pylori serology test can serve you greatly.

It is one of the most reliable H. pylori rapid antibody tests on the market. It is at least 90% accurate and has been used for over 10 years in hospitals and laboratories. It is manufactured in France according to ISO13485 and approved by the European authorities for self-testing.

Interpretation of the Results

Results are interpreted visually as positive, negative or invalid.

The Colour intensity of the test line and control line can be different. If the line is visible, you should take the result into account.

Positive: Control (C) and Test (T) lines appear.

  • Such a result indicates an infection with H. pylori.
  • Do not panic.
  • Consult your doctor about further examination.

Negative: Only a Control line (C) appears.

  • Such a result indicates that you are not infected.
  • The negative result may also be due to the low concentration of anti-H. pylori antibodies. This may also be the case if you got infected just recently and the immune system did not yet produce a detectable concentration of antibodies.
  • If symptoms persist, consult your doctor for laboratory examination.

Invalid: Invalid result appears if you do not carefully follow instructions for use. Please take a photo of such a test result and contact us at help@patrisadmin

Frequently Asked Questions about the Patris Health® Helicobacter pylori Home Test

I was already once diagnosed and treated for H. pylori infection. Can I use the Patris Health® Helicobacter pylori Home Test to check if I am infected again?

No. Serology tests like ours are not appropriate because antibodies against H. pylori can stay in the blood for several years after treatment, and the result can be false-positive. It means that the test can show positive results although you are not infected.

Can I use the Patris Health® Helicobacter pylori Home Test to check if my H. pylori eradication treatment was successful?

No. Serology is not a suitable diagnostic technique for the eradication treatment follow-up. Consult your doctor for laboratory examination.

Is it necessary to stop with PPI medications (proton pump inhibitors) before performing the Patris Health® Helicobacter pylori Home Test?

No, it is not necessary to stop. Specific antibodies against Helicobacter pylori can also be detected in case of ongoing therapy with PPI medications.1

Performance evaluation of a rapid whole-blood immunoassay for the detection of IgG antibodies against Helicobacter pylori in daily clinical practice. Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials.

The test line is barely visible. Is such a result still positive?

Yes, even though the test line (T) is barely visible, you should interpret such a result as positive. The Colour intensity of the test line and control line can also be different. It only matters that is visible, no matter the colour intensity.

How accurate and reliable is the Patris Health® Helicobacter pylori Home Test?
