Helicobacter rapid test, TEST INSTRUCTIONS FOR FECES
Allow the test cartridge and reagent tube to balance to room temperature (15-30°C) before starting the test.
- Defecates into a diaper, pot or other clean, dry container or toilet emptied of flush water.
- A) If the stool is solid, open the green cap of the reagent flask and insert the sampling stick attached to the cap into at least three different parts of the stool. When immersing a stick in the stool, you can spin it, but do not scoop. An adequate amount of stool on the stick is one quarter the size of the pea (50 mg)
Move the stick back to the reagent tube and screw the cap on tightly.
B) If the stool is liquid or diarrhea, remove the green cap with sampling sticks from the reagent tube and take a sample with a separate disposable pipe. Squeeze the ball head of the pipette and then, by lightening the compressive force, suck a liquid or sludge-like diarrhea sample into the pipette. Squeeze two drops of the pipette into the reagent tube (about 80 μl) and close it, as above.
3. Shake the reagent tube vigorously about. 20 seconds, then let it stand peacefully for about 2 minutes.
4. Place the test cartridge you took from the sealed foil bag on the table. Open the colourless mouth cap of the sample reagent tube so that the tube can be used as a dosing tool for the sample it contains. Turn the tube vertically upside down, place its mouth on top of the sample pit S near the well and squeeze two drops (about 80 μl) of liquid stool sample extract into the well. Avoid the creation/entry of air bubbles into the sample pit. Turn the tube back with the mouth up, close it again tightly with the colorless cap and set aside.
5. Check the time on the clock and allow the sample to be absorbed in peace through the rectangular test window of the cassette until the background lightens again and zone C is clear.
6. Quick test for helicobacter: Read the result 10 minutes after dripping the sample into the S-pit (no longer after more than 20 minutes) and interpret it as follows:
* The result is negative, i.e. there is no detectable amount of H. pylori in the faecal sample if only one, i.e. the control line, appears at C.
*The result is positive if there is a weak red-tinted line in zone T below the clear control zone (C).
*The result is invalid and the test failed whenever the C line is not displayed.
