PCR Evaluation LEGEND:  + = positive    - = negative    id:id = pooled sample    

equ = equivocal    NT or blank = no test performed    sus = suspect    wps = weak positive

All samples are first tested using a generic Helicobacter PCR assay that detects all bacteria in the Helicobacter genus. Samples testing negative on this assay are reported negative for all helicobacters. Samples testing positive on the generic assay are subsequently tested with PCR assays specific for H. bilis, H. ganmani, H. hepaticus, H. rodentium, H. trogontum and H. typhlonius and positive results are reported. If the sample is positive on the generic Helicobacter assay, but negative on the six Helicobacter species-specific assays, the sample is reported positive for Helicobacter sp.

Serology Report LEGEND: * = borderline  + = positive  - = negative  NT = test not performed

EQ = equivocal  HE = hemolysis precluded testing  I = insufficient  L = less than 10% normal IgG

N = normal IgG  NS = non-specific reactivity  W = weak positive
