Biohit Oyj and Pooyandegan Pezeshki Pardis (3P) have signed an agreement for the distribution of the Biohit Unified GastroPanel® test in Iran.

GastroPanel® innovation is a stomach health test. The test is performed from a blood sample and designed for diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection and atrophic gastritis, irrespective whether caused by H. pylori infection or autoimmune disease. The test also enables to assess whether the patient is at risk for gastric or esophageal cancer, peptic ulcer disease or malabsorption of vitamin B12, calcium or iron.  Among dyspeptic patients, GastroPanel® helps identifying the patients who need further examinations. GastroPanel® consists of four biomarkers: Pepsinogen I and II, Gastrin-17 and H. pylori -antibodies. In the unified GastroPanel® test, the reaction conditions and solutions are uniform, which makes the test fast and easy to perform in the laboratory.
