Heliprobe® System

Modern, simple breath testing for Helicobacter pylori

The Heliprobe® system by Kibion is a primary diagnostic tool for detecting the presence of Helicobacter pylori, and for eradication treatment follow-up.

The time from swallowing Helicap to getting a result is under 15 minutes making Heliprobe® the fastest Urea Breath Test available.

The compact size and simplicity of the system means breath tests can be conducted in your rooms with the results available right away.

The system comprises a capsule, a card for capturing the breath sample and the analyser unit. The HeliCap capsule contains labelled urea and is swallowed by the patient. The BreathCard contains a medium designed to trap the breath being tested. It includes an indicator window that changes colour when enough breath has been collected. The Heliprobe analyser is a small, sturdy desktop sized unit with a simple interface.

Patients swallow a HeliCap capsule. After 10 minutes, the patient will breath into a BreathCard which holds the breath sample. The card is then placed into the HeliProbe analyser and a button press initiates the analysis. After 250 seconds the result of the test is available.

With a sensitivity of 95% and specificity of 100% the Heliprobe delivers an outstanding level of accuracy1.

Backed by over a decade of research and development, with a proven track record of reliability Heliprobe® remains the instrument of choice by healthcare professionals worldwide.
