Your mother-in-law’s age-old recipe, your neighbour’s nonsensical chatter, or your co-worker’s competitive showdown – some things in life may be hard to digest. But what’s even harder is having to experience abnormal bowel movements, rectal bleeding, bloating or abdominal pain. You may end up googling these for an answer, but imagine the nerve-wracking situation you’ll land yourself in when your search results suggest terms like colorectal cancer.
Suddenly, you may get flashes of a conversation you had with your uncle months ago, about Helicobacter Pylori (H Pylori) and Celiac Disease, the two gastrointestinal conditions with nearly the same symptoms – abdominal pain, diarrhoea, weight loss, fatigue, bloody stools and in certain cases, irritation and depression.
Then, you’ll know it’s time to do your research on Gastroenterology and gain familiarity about these gastrointestinal ailments. During your research, you might come across the fact that several kits are available that can accurately diagnose H Pylori infection and, confirm lactose intolerance. Trivitron manufactures high-end diagnostic kits for clinical laboratories, doctors and healthcare establishments.
While the Biocard Celiac Test is a rapid immune chromatographic lateral flow test for the qualitative detection of anti-tissue transglutaminase IgA antibodies, the Biocard Helicobacter Pylori IgG test is an immunochromatographic rapid test for the detection of H Pylori IgG antibodies from serum or whole blood samples. The Biocard Helicobacter Pylori Urease Test, on the other hand, is a tablet test for the qualitative detection of urease activity from biopsy or culture samples.
These non-invasive serological tests are not interfered by antacid medication or antibiotics, unlike biopsy-based tests, urea breath tests or stool antigen tests that may give false or negative results under medication.
These kits allow for convenient testing with a single drop of blood and offer reliable test results in 10 to 30 minutes. When stored at room temperature, these kits will have a shelf life of 24 months.
