“I’ve been using BreathID® Hp for three years and have been very happy with the results. I routinely test all of my weight loss surgery patients for H. pylori using this urea breath test system. If they are positive, I test again post-treatment to ensure the infection has been eradicated.
I found it is much better to test my patients in the office, rather than sending them out for testing. The Breath ID® Hp system makes testing highly convenient for my patients as well as assists me in retaining patients and scheduling surgeries.
Importantly, I have found using BreathID® Hp to be a very reliable test and it is well tolerated by my patients. It is a simple test to administer and the system is fast and easy to operate.”
