We offer a portfolio of unique and patented tests designed to transform clinical practice by making screening, diagnosis and monitoring of gastrointestinal diseases more efficient and cost effective. Non-invasive diagnostics are at the core of our offering, making BIOHIT HealthCare the provider of choice for leading gastroenterologists, ENT specialists and laboratory scientists across the UK.

One key area of focus is dyspepsia and reflux. BIOHIT HealthCare are the exclusive UK distributors of PEPTEST®, a rapid immunological test for the quantitative analysis of pepsin.

PEPTEST is an innovative, non-invasive diagnostic test to help identify reflux, and is especially critical in detecting silent reflux. Based on quantitative lateral flow technology, PEPTEST detects the presence of pepsin in clinical samples from the upper digestive and respiratory tracts.

PEPTEST can be used to help diagnose and direct a wide spectrum of pathological conditions, including GORD (gastroesophageal reflux), LPR (laryngopharyngeal reflux), chronic cough, cystic fibrosis, post-lung transplant rejection, asthma and sinusitis.
