The SELFCheck Stomach Ulcer test detects the presence of antibodies for Helicobacter pylori, a type of bacteria that can cause stomach ulcers.

It enters the stomach in food and drink, but does not get destroyed by the acid there.


• A simple test with easy to follow instructions.
• No requirement to limit food or fluid intake prior to testing
• Home testing - no need to send off for results.
• Only a drop of blood required, with visible results within 10 minutes.
• The test can be carried out at any time of day.
• Detailed instruction leaflet contains useful details about stomach infection.

Why should I test for Helicobacter pylori?

• It is estimated that half of the world's population may be infected with Helicobacter pylori, so there is an increased chance that you could have it.
• If left untreated infections increase the risk of developing indigestion, heartburn, gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining), stomach ulcers and possibly cancer.

How to use the test

1: The test requires a small drop of blood.
2: Visual results will be available within 10 minutes.
3: Read the full instruction leaflet contained in the pack before use.

How to read the results

If 2 lines appear in the test window (no matter how light) you have a positive! Result

If 1 line appears in the test window you have a negative! Result

If no lines appear in the test window then the test is invalid and you should refer to the instruction manual for details

What are the next steps I should take if the results are positive for Helicobacter pylori?

• Consult your doctor for a further diagnosis & examination and appropriate treatment

• Medical decisions should only be made following consultation with a doctor.
• Even if you are not infected with Helicobacter pylori this does not necessarily mean that you can't get a stomach ulcer for another reason.

If I still have digestive problems yet my results were negative what can I do?

You should speak to your local pharmacist about treatments which may benefit you.

Pack contains: Each pack contains 1 test cassette, 1 safety lancet, 1 buffer solution, 1 plaster and instructions for use.
