An improved staining technique for Helicobacter pylori developed by Vennie Chou from Perceptronix Medical Inc. (PMI Labs) allows for a faster H. Pylori detection time. A pilot study was done with The University of British Columbia, Department of Pathology and the results illustrated that modified Giemsa stain (mGS) allows for a faster and cheaper alternative to other methodologies such as Alcian Yellow-Toluidne Blue stain (AYB) and immunohistochemical (IHC)
Please see below the poster as presented at Canadian Association of Pathologists (CAP) Annual Meeting in Montreal on July 12, 2010:
- Allowed to be done on touch-prep smears: Touch prep can be done first prior to performing a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.
- Reduced pathologists screening time
- Reduced laboratory technologist preparation time
- Decreased cost per slide
