VIDAS® H. pylori IgG is an automated qualitative test for use on the instruments of the VIDAS® family. Using the ELFA technique (Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay), it allows rapid detection of anti-Helicobacter pylori IgG antibodies in human serum or plasma, which are correlated with the presence of histologically confirmed H. pylori infection.

Serological methods such as enzyme immunoassays are non-invasive, inexpensive, quick, and easy to perform. Compared to invasive methods, they do not rely on the accuracy of the sampling.(1,2)
