HOUSTON - May 21, 2020 - PRLog -- UK healthcare innovator, RD Biomed, developed Peptest, the world's first non-invasive test for reflux, in 2007.  Since that time it has grown to global prominence. Shipping costs and wait times were a barrier to the U.S. market preventing the adoption of this direct to consumer diagnostic test. Now with Restech managing the PepsinCheck operations, the test is shipped from the U.S., processed at strategically located American labs, and results are sent back to the consumer by mail and a secure email within about a week.

Both PepsinCheck (U.S. market) and Peptest (non-U.S. markets) are manufactured by RD Biomed to the same global standard. The test detects the presence of the stomach enzyme pepsin (recognized as a reliable diagnostic biomarker for reflux) in saliva and sputum samples.

Restech VP of Clinical Affairs, Thomas Ball, commented, "As we Rethink Reflux across the continuum of care, direct to consumer healthcare plays a pivotal role.  RD Biomed and the Peptest provide an ideal accompaniment to our product portfolio, ensuring that tough diagnostic cases find appropriate physician-based care in addition to broadening our reach to an unprecedented range of patients. PepsinCheck represents the first at-home reflux testing in the US market and holds the potential to revolutionize the care of individuals with symptoms ranging from heartburn, to chronic cough, and even obstructive sleep apnea."

Professor Peter Dettmar, Director of RD Biomed, said: "We're thrilled that our salivary pepsin test for diagnosing reflux has officially launched in the US. It has been a pleasure working with Restech, a successful digestive health solutions company, and we could not have chosen a better company to distribute and commercialise PepsinCheck by Peptest."
