BIOHIT HealthCare recently filmed an exciting testimonial video with Jane Shaw, Consultant Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Trust. In the video, Jane explains how the use of Peptest – a simple and rapid diagnostic test for assessing and monitoring laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) – adds value to her clinical practice when investigating voice disorders.

Voice disorders affect one in 25 people in the UK, and LPR is a common culprit. The condition causes the backflow of stomach contents – including strong digestive enzymes like pepsin – towards the back of the throat, causing inflammation and compromising speech production.

Peptest uses advanced lateral flow technology to objectively measure pepsin in clinical saliva samples collected by patients at home or in clinics, reducing the need for costly and invasive diagnostic procedures. Pinpointing the exact cause of vocal complications is crucial, as an accurate diagnosis serves as a clear guide for targeted and effective treatment, enabling a successful restoration of vocal health.
