    Comprehensive Clostridium Culture

    $300.00

    To aid in the identification and differentiation of Clostridium species, our specialized anaerobic culture optimized for Clostridium detects nearly 40 beneficial and pathogenic species, including C. botulinumC. tetani and C. perfringens, as well as C. difficile, which is often present in healthy individuals, but can be associated with antibiotic-associated diarrhea. If C. difficile is cultured at any level, the sample is automatically tested for all known toxigenic strains using an FDA-cleared, molecular diagnostic DNA assay at no additional charge.

    This test is useful for

    • Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhea
    • Autism Spectrum Disorders

    Comprehensive Stool Analysis

    $447.00

    Gastrointestinal complaints are among the most common reasons that patients seek medical care. Symptoms associated with GI disorders include persistent diarrhea, constipation, bloating, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome and malabsorption. The Comprehensive Stool Analysis is a simple stool test that can help assess digestive and absorptive functions, the presence of opportunistic pathogens and to monitor the efficacy of therapeutic remediation of GI disorders. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing to prescriptive and natural agents is also performed for appropriate bacterial and fungal species at no additional charge.

    This test is useful for

    • Gastrointestinal Symptoms
    • Autoimmune Disease
    • Joint Pain
    • IBD/IBS
    • Inflammation
    • Food Sensitivities
    • Nutritional Deficiencies
    • Skin Conditions (Atopic Dermatitis)

    Comprehensive Stool Analysis w/Parasitology x1-3

    $395.00

    Gastrointestinal complaints are among the most common in medical care. This comprehensive profile helps pinpoint the causes of gastrointestinal symptoms and chronic systemic conditions, and measures key markers of digestion, absorption and inflammation. Using growth-based culture, the standard of practice in clinical microbiology, as well as sensitive biochemical assays and microscopy, this thorough stool test evaluates the status of beneficial and pathogenic microorganisms including aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, yeast and parasites. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing to prescriptive and natural agents is also performed for appropriate bacterial and fungal species at no additional charge. Parasitology stool testing can include one-, two- or three-day collection, based on practitioner preference.

    This test is useful for

    • Gastrointestinal Symptoms
    • Autoimmune Disease
    • IBD/IBS
    • Inflammation
    • Food Sensitivities
    • Nutritional Deficiencies
    • Joint Pain

    GI 360 Essentials

    $474.00

    The GI360™ Essentials Profile is an innovative, comprehensive and clinically-applicable stool profile, utilizing multiplex PCR molecular technology coupled with growth-based culture and ID by MALDI-TOF, sensitive biochemical assays and microscopy to detect and assess the status of pathogens, viruses, parasites and bacteria that may be contributing to acute or chronic gastrointestinal symptoms and disease.

    Microbiome Abundance and Diversity is a gut microbiota DNA analysis tool that identifies and characterizes the abundance and diversity of more than 45 targeted analytes that peer-reviewed research has shown to contribute to dysbiosis and other chronic disease states.

    The GI360™ Essentials can identify the presence of pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and parasites using multiplexed, real-time PCR. Viruses are the primary cause of acute diarrhea, and the least commonly tested. The identification of pathogenic bacteria, viruses and parasites improves treatment strategies and patient outcomes.

    The Dysbiosis Index (DI) is a calculation with scores from 1 to 5 based on the overall bacterial abundance and profile within the patient’s sample as compared to a reference population. Values above 2 indicate a microbiota profile that differs from the defined normobiotic reference population (i.e., dysbiosis). The higher the DI above 2, the more the sample is considered to deviate from normobiosis.

    GI Pathogen Profile, multiplex PCR

    $349.00

    Viruses, parasites, and bacteria—now you can receive 14 results with 1 test.

    Overlapping symptoms—compounded by the lack of testing methods that could identify a full range of viruses, parasites, and bacteria—have historically made GI infections difficult to diagnose. Confidently rule out infectious causes of diarrhea with the test’s 99.9% overall negative predictive value.

    The GI Pathogen Profile provides you with results to help you target treatment for greater therapeutic efficacy and reduced risk of complications and side effects associated with incorrect treatment or unwarranted antimicrobial administration.

    Use the GI Pathogen Profile as a stand-alone test, or as a complement to our Comprehensive Stool Analysis, to test for the presence of viral infections or to differentiate between possible diarrheagenic strains of E. coli.

    Yeast Culture

    $115.00

    Identification of abnormal levels of specific yeast species in the stool is an important diagnostic step in therapeutic planning for the patient with chronic gastrointestinal and extra-gastrointestinal symptoms. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing to prescriptive and natural agents is also performed for appropriate fungal species at no additional charge. This provides useful clinical information to help plan an appropriate treatment protocol.
