Resumption of Breath Collections – H. pylori

April 4, 2022

Resumption of Breath Collections at Dynacare Laboratory and Health Services Centres

At Dynacare, our vision is to be Canada’s health and wellness solutions leader.

Dynacare temporarily suspended the collection of breath samples, specifically the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) Urea Breath Test, at our Laboratory and Health Services Centres due to the high positivity rates of COVID-19 and uncertainty related to Omicron.

With increasing vaccination in the general population and changing public health restrictions, Dynacare is resuming collection of breath samples for the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) Urea Breath Test at our Laboratory and Health Services Centres, effective immediately. We recognize that these tests require the customer to remove their mask and be near to a Dynacare employee during collection of the sample. We have taken measures to ensure the health and safety of our customers and employees. All Dynacare employees wear face masks when serving customers. In addition, employees will conduct a risk assessment and if needed N95 masks are available for employees conducting the test.

Dynacare will continue to monitor the situation and update our policy as appropriate.

Dynacare will also continue to accept and analyze breath samples collected by Independent Physicians and private clients for this test.

Dynacare is committed to providing the highest quality and value to our clients and to the healthcare system. If you have inquiries pertaining to these changes, please contact Customer Care at 800.565.5721.
