H. Pylori Breath Test to Commercial Laboratory

Due to limited use, the 13C-urea breath test for H. Pylori will no longer be offered in house but will be sent to a reference lab.  Kits for administering the test can be picked up in Specimen Control (6240 RCP).  Completed tests can be returned to Specimen Control.  Please use a white miscellaneous requisition (A-04) for ordering the test.  Starting date for this change is Monday, January 10, 2005. Questions can be directed to Mikhail Arey, MT(ASCP), mikhail-arey@uiowa.edu (6-6270, pager #3662) or Ronald Feld, Ph.D., ronald-feld@uiowa.edu (6-1759).
