Test ID: HPCRP    
Helicobacter pylori with Clarithromycin Resistance Prediction, Molecular Detection, PCR, Varies

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Assessing pure isolates of Helicobacter pylori to predict clarithromycin resistance or susceptibility

Highlights

This test detects the Helicobacter pylori 23S ribosomal RNA gene and the three most common 23S ribosomal RNA gene single nucleotide variations (A2143G, A2142G, and A2142C) leading to resistance to clarithromycin using viable or nonviable isolates to molecularly predict clarithromycin resistance or susceptibility.
