Exalenz BreathID® non-invasive breath test is a diagnostic test that analyzes a breath sample before and after taking 13C-enriched urea to help identify patients with H. pylori infection.
Your doctor will start the breath test by collecting your breath samples using the BreathID® Hp device. You will drink a mixed solution of 13C-urea tablet and citric acid powder. You must drink the solution within 2 hours after mixing it. Then, you have to breathe normally via the cannula while the test is being performed.
Do not eat for at least 1 hour before taking the mixed solution.
If the mixed solution has large particles after mixing it for 5 minutes, do not use it and open a new kit.
