An improvement in isolation and preservation of clinical strains of Helicobacter pylori.

Tropical gastroenterology : official journal of... 32(1):36 (2011) PMID 21922854

Isolation of H. pylori from gastric mucosal biopsy specimens is a prerequisite for further studies addressing drug susceptibility testing, analysis and characterization of virulence factors, molecular epidemiology studying or other comparative studies. In this study, we used a modified enriched culture medium with short incubation time to improve the isolation rate of H. pylori from the clinical specimens.
