Peptest using for Pepsin analysis

  • Peptest is a non-invasive and alternative first line test for conditions including GERD (gastroesophageal reflux), LPR (laryngopharyngeal reflux), chronic cough, cystic fibrosis, post-lung transplant rejection, asthma and sinusitus.Clinical applications

    • Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT)
    • Respiratory
    • Gastroenterology
  • Peptest can be used to detect and measure pepsin in a wide range of clinical samples including:

    • Saliva
    • Sputum
    • Tracheal aspirate
    • Oesophageal aspiration
    • Gastric juice
    • Exhaled air condensate

  • The lateral flow device contains two types of unique antibodies – one is tagged with a colorimetric marker and becomes soluble on application of a test sample. The other antibody is found in a nitrocellulose membrane, at the test line.Any pepsin in the sample is bound at the test line by the two antibodies and a coloured line is seen through the viewing window in the plastic case.

  • The Peptest Cube is suitable for use in the quantitative and qualitative evaluation of Pepsin measurement results. It will display the result of pepsin concentration directly in ng/ml in just three seconds.Weighing only 40g and with an edge length of 41mm, the Peptest Cube can be used as a mobile handheld device or as a desktop measuring device remotely controlled via USB cable.The test specific data is transferred wirelessly by radio-frequency identification (RFID) before each measurement and can be stored internally.Every saved result includes a unique measurement ID, test name, lot number, distributor/manufacturer, and date and time.The measurement data can also be extracted via USB using a special USB cable and the Peptest Cube Reader Software. The device is powered by battery but can also be powered via USB.
