ABAL is an independent, clinical laboratory that provides kits and analysis for the Urea Breath Test to detect Helicobacter pylori infection
What is Helicobacter Pylori?
Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori) is a type of bacteria that infects the stomach. About a third of Australian adults carry the bug, but many don’t realise they have it.
Once detected, H. pylori can be treated.
How can Helicobacter Pylori be diagnosed?
There are several ways Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori) can be detected in people with symptoms, such as ulcers or gastrointestinal pain.
At ABAL we use the C13 Breath Test to detect the bacteria.
