Rapid Urease Test for Helicobacter pylori diagnosis.
Test has 3 forms:
AMA RUT 1 - one test-slide in the pack
AMA RUT 10 - ten test-slides in the pack
AMA RUT 21 - twenty-one test-slides in the pack
The test refers to invasive method for H.pylori detection. Determination of urease
activity of biopsy specimen with AMA RUT is performed straight up to endoscopy procedure.
Unlike most of the rapid urease tests, AMA RUT detects the urease that is present in the biopsy specimen at the time it is taken, not the urease that can be produced hours later. Thus, saving time on incubation, AMA RUT also provides better specificity compared to most of the gel-based rapid urease tests.
Being a standart for rapid urease test in Russia for over 10 years, AMA RUT proved to be highly sensitive (93%) and specific (95%).
Extensive clinical testings held in Moscow, St.-Petersburg and other Russian cities have proved that AMA RUT is an accurate point-of-care test.
AMA meets the requirements of the In-vitro Diagnostics Directive 98/79/EC and AMA RUT is of f icially registered in European Community.
Evident color change
While other rapid urease tests change color from yellow to red, AMA RUT reacts positive by changing to blue. This indication is easier to
notice, because it differs from the color of the biopsy specimen.
Use the specimen further
The same biopsy specimen can be examined with other methods directly after the 3-minutes period. The specimen can then be taken for further analysis, such as culture, histology etc.
Easy to store
Shelf-life is 24 months. No special storage conditions are required.
