The meditrol H. Pylori cassette-test serves the proof of
anti-bodies against H. Pylori from blood, serum or

results visible after 15 min.
Correct use of this test allows diagnosis of H.
Pylori-infections in symptomatic patients. This information helps
with the treatment of gastric ulcers. The meditrol H. Pylori
cassette-test allows detection of H.Pylori-infections through a
visual color-reaction through a non-enzymatic sandwich-immunoassay.
For this, the test was coated with H.Pylori-antigen in the
test-region, and with monoclonal anti-H.Pylori anti-bodies in the
control-region. During testing, anti-H.Pylori anti-bodies
potentially contained in the sample react with gold-marked H.Pylori
antigens. Due to the bivalent structure of the anti-bodies, this
compound then collects as visible precipitate in the
control-region. Excess gold-marked H. Pylori antigen then reacts in
each case in the control-region with the specific mouse anti-H.
Pylori anti-bodies. A visible test-stripe, on the other hand, is
only apparent in the presence of anti- H.Pylori anti-bodies in the
Application of the test:
Bring test-cassette, buffer, samples and controls to room
temperature (20 – 30 °C) before use. Take test-cassettes out of the
bag only immediately before use.
Remove the test-cassette from the bag and label the cassette
with the corresponding patient identification. To avoid
condensation, the cassette absolutely must have reached room
temperature before removal.
Add a drop of serum, plasma or full-blood (approx. 20 μL) into
the round opening of the cassette. Following, add 2-3 drops
developing-buffer into the same opening. Do not add reagents or
samples onto the long reaction-field, because this will void the
Read results after 15 minutes. After 30 minutes no more
interpretations should be made
