Four tests may be most commonly used to detect H. pylori:
Specimen type: Serum (Blood Sample)
Specimen collection procedure: Venipuncture - Collection of blood from a vein, usually from the arm.
Specimen type: Breath Test
Specimen collection procedure: Urea labeled with uncommon isotope will be given to swallow. 10-20 minutes later, isotope labeled carbon dioxide will be detected from the exhaled breath.
