HDC was a web page,  http://www.hdccorp.com/

One interesting item is they have modified the string test for detection of
H pylori.
They claim this is alternative specimen collection device and will be
competing with scoping the patient and performing a biopsy. HMO's are
interested in this because of the much lower cost than scope fees.
