The MP Diagnostics (MPD) HELICO BLOT 2.1 Western Blot kit assay is a qualitative assay for the detection of IgG antibodies to Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in human serum or plasma, with the added indication of current status. It is an improved version of HELICO BLOT 2.0 where in addition to bacterial lysate, there is a recombinant antigen with high predictive value for the indication of current H. pylori . The product is intended for use as a serological test for the detection of both current and past with H. pylori. Unlike an ELISA, the MP Diagnostics HELICO BLOT 2.1 allows for the detection of antibodies to specific proteins of H. pylori, including antigens associated with pathology such as CagA and VacA. This kit is supplied for research purposes only. It is not intended for use in the diagnosis or prognosis of disease. In particular, this test cannot be used to evaluate blood specimens for the purpose of donor screening, or as a confirmatory diagnostic.
