Digestion testing

Microbial drivers of gut-health

Complete microbiome mapping

In the last few decades, DNA analysis has transformed the field of microbiology and gut health testing. The Human Microbiome Project and research around the globe have characterized the GI microbiome. More than ever before, we are keenly aware of the health benefits and disease risks brought about by the microorganisms that inhabit the GI tract.

The Complete Microbiome Mapping Test was designed to assess a patient’s microbiome from a single stool sample, with particular attention to microbes that cause disease or that disrupt normal microbial balance and contribute to perturbations in the GI flora and contribute to illness.

The panel is a comprehensive collection of microbial targets as well as immune and digestive markers. It screens for pathogenic bacteria, commensal bacteria, opportunistic pathogens, fungi, viruses, and parasites.

    Common conditions:

    • IBS/IBD
    • Abdominal cramps or pain
    • leaky gut symptoms
    • SIBO
    • Allergies
    • Weakness
    • Diarrhoea or constipation
    • Bloating
    • Fatigue

    SIBO breath test

    This simple, non–invasive, gastrointestinal test detects bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine, often referred to as SIBO. Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a common gastrointestinal disorder that often underlies chronic gastrointestinal symptoms of maldigestion and malabsorption, including bloating, gas, diarrhea, irregularity, and abdominal pain.
