DIGESTIVE STOOL TEST

GI Effects is unlike any other stool analysis profile,
going beyond the standard parameters for identifying
gastrointestinal disorders
  • Requires only one, single sample collection
  • Greater accuracy due to advanced technology DNA analysis
  • Prevent Chronic Conditions & Diseases
  • Evaluates balance of microbes shown to contribute to weight gain

ADVANTAGES OF THE GI EFFECTS STOOL PROFILE
 

Greater Accuracy

Microbial DNA analysis improves the accuracy of results and includes both aerobes and anaerobes. Anaerobes comprise over 95% of the bacteria in the gut and are difficult to detect with old culture methods.

Antibiotic resistance genes

DNA analysis detects organisms possessing genes that give rise to antibiotic resistance, offering clinicians a superior tool for effective patient management.

Single Sample Collection

Culture methods require multiple collections, whereas the GI Effects Stool Profile requires only one sample collection leading to improved patient compliance!

Eliminates Errors in Transport

Sample transport is a source of significant error in culture analysis due to the change in microbial balance from the time of collection. Using DNA analysis, the specimen is placed in a fixative tube that stops microbial growth and offers a highly accurate snapshot of the microbial balance in the gut.

Increased Sensitivity

GI Effects detects as few as 5 cells per gram - a 5000-fold increase in sensitivity over microscopy for parasite detection.

A Better Value

No reflex or add-on costs for additional testing!
