There are tests for reflux - eg the Pepsin test (Peptest.co.uk) which looks for the presence of pepsin in the mouth or throat. Since pepsin should only be found in the stomach, if found in the mouth, it proves reflux.
However, rather than sending off £50 for a kit and diagnosis of a saliva sample, reflux is usually recognisable by symptoms. (See the symptom checker in the appendices of www.DownWithAcid.org.uk)
