Sercon ABCA2 breath analyser for helicobacter pylori detection

Wednesday, 04 May, 2016 | Supplied by: Scientex Pty Ltd


Good performance and versatility, combined with user-friendly software, make the ABCA2 from Sercon a suitable choice for 13C breath tests for helicobacter pylori detection. Enabling high throughput, the product is based on isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS) and provides 0.1% precision (range 0.1 to 10% 13C).

13C is a non-radioactive, naturally occurring stable isotope that is used to label a specific metabolic substrate. The patient ingests and metabolises the substance, such as urea, in such a way that the 13C is released as 13CO2 and expelled in the patient’s breath. The level of 13CO2 measured in the breath is used to determine a particular metabolic disorder.

Other demonstrated 13C applications include: fat malabsorption, pancreatic function, lactose intolerance, bile acid circulation, gastric emptying, liver function and metabolic turnover rate measurements.
