Antibiotic resistance testing in Australia

Post by knuji »

Hello... Anyone know if there are labs in Australia that can test the antibiotic resistance of H Pylori in stool samples?
I did a GI-Map test (Diagnostic Solutions, USA) about five years ago, but the samples take a long time to get to the USA from Australia and I am unsure how this delay affects the accuracy of the results. It would be good to find a lab in Australia that can do it.

Getting the antibiotic resistance test done from stool sample is very difficult. I would not trust any test result from DNA testing as the stool's DNA is too complex. You can either do it via endoscopy or a "string test".

However, String test is not an approved product in Australia yet. It's more of a research tool at the moment.
