RE: Helicobacter pylori

In the event that there may be any confusion, higher reimbursement is merely
the "icing on the cake".  I am more than willing to share/compare our
testing for H.pylori by utilizing IHC with anyone out there so they can see
for themselves its superiority...I appreciate the opportunity to clarify.

While I agree that immunohistochemistry is the preferred method (at
least in our Department), I would never state that a test is being used
because of higher reimbursement.  A selection should be made based on
scientific validity and adaptability to one's laboratory.

We use IHC, better straight forward staining and higher reimbursement.

Is anyone using a nonsilver method for HP?
