About the breath test in my country

Hello Helico_Expert,

I want to get your opinion, your suggestions are important to me.

In my country, only the helibrobe device is used, it does not give numerical results.

only; 0 - Negative 1- Indeterminate 2- Positive

What do you think about this device, I could not find a device that gives numerical value in my country.

There is no device to measure the bacterial load, whereas forum members get results numerically. For example 20 or 58 etc.

In my opinion, any test that give you a "grey" area result is considerably accurate.

My understanding of this heliprobe machine is that it uses breath card system. It's not as accurate as the balloon system. However, I am amazed that it provides a "grey" area result, which therefore, I believe the result is trustworthy.
