GI Microbial Assay Plus by Diagnostic Solutions
The GI-MAP comprehensive stool test analysis evaluates the DNA of the organisms living within the gut using the most advanced qPCR technology for results you can rely on.
Our body is this huge ecosystem that is innately controlled. Our gut/digestive system plays a huge part of that and what makes up our microbiome. Even 80% of our immune system is in the gut, so it’s very important to know and take care of our gut health. The GI-MAP was designed to detect microbes that may be disturbing normal microbial balance or contributing to illness as well as indicators of digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function. The GI-MAP measures opportunistic organisms, normal flora, H. plylori, pathogens, fungi, parasites and antibiotic resistance genes. Basically, what normal bacteria is supposed to be there, are there any imbalances, any bacteria that may be pathogenic making us sick, parasites, viruses, fungi and yeast. And the Plus refers to immunologic markers for GI health and function including SIgA, Elastase, Calprotectin and Anti-gliadin testing.
