For the information of others in the newsgroup, the Entero-test kit is a
noninvasive device for collecting H. pylori bacteria from patients with
stomach ulcers.  This method is especially useful for monitoring the
effectiveness of antibiotic therapy.  The kit consists of a mesh string
connected to a gelatin capsule.  The patient swallows the capsule, then the
string is retrieved after a half hour or so.  The string is placed on either
culture agar or urease agar to detect the organisms.  New methods for
detecting the organisms retrieved on the string are under development.
