Analysis performed on strains or gastric biopsies

  • Identification of strains by microscopy and conventional biochemical tests
  • Culture of gastric biopsy on selective culture medium
  • Determination of minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) by quantitative diffusion gradient test strips on isolates and susceptibility category interpretation according to EUCAST guidelines (last applicable version)

Analysis performed on strains or gastric biopsies

  • Identification of H. pylori and molecular identification of mutations conferring resistance to macrolides and fluoroquinolones using extraction of nucleic acid from shredded

  • Detection of H.pylori antigens in stool using a rapid lateral flow antigen detection method (immunochromatographic assay)

  • Detection and quantification of IgG antibodies towards H.pylori in human serum or plasma by enzyme immunoassay
