than the A2143G mutation, there does not seem to be any clinical relevance as both mutations are highly associated with treatment failure.

The limitation of all FRET-MCA tests is the availability of a special thermocycler which is costly. The first available model used in most of the published experiments is the LightCyclerâ„¢ (Roche Diagnostics), but several other apparatuses are now coming out on the market and the cost is decreasing. Such thermocyclers can also be used for numerous applications other than the detection of single nucleotide polymorphisms using a biprobe.

An interesting application currently being developed is the detection of H. pylori and its possible clarithromycin resistance in stool samples which has the tremendous advantage of being a noninvasive test. The problem of inhibition of Taq polymerase by stool compounds such as vegetal polysaccharides has now been almost solved by using special DNA extraction kits (Qiagen).
