New & Available Now: Standalone GI Profiles
We hear you loud and clear – sometimes you want to check a particular marker, or set of markers, after your intervention to get an update on your patient’s clinical picture without running the whole GI EcologiX profile.
We have now introduced five competitively priced standalone profiles.
The Standalone Profiles
GI Health Markers
The GI health markers only profile is a non-invasive stool test, which measures calprotectin, SIgA, beta-defensin 2, pancreatic elastase, and zonulin. This test can be used to provide a clinical picture of how a patient is responding to their microbiome, as well as a comprehensive overview of GI and digestive function.
The microbiome only profile is a qPCR non-invasive stool test measuring key microbial markers related to chronic health conditions such as IBS/IBD, SIBO, Neurodegeneration, Autoimmunity, and other chronic inflammatory conditions. Please see the sample report for a full break down of the microbes measured.
Faecal calprotectin is a reliable, non-invasive differentiating marker for IBD and IBS. Monitoring levels of faecal calprotectin can also help determine the efficacy of clinical interventions in IBD management.
Faecal pancreatic elastase is used to detect pancreatic insufficiency and its degree of severity, which co-occurs with several GI and non-GI diseases such as coeliac, cystic fibrosis, HIV, IBS, IBD, pancreatitis, alcohol-related liver disease and diabetes.
H. pylori Stool Antigen
This test detects antigens towards H. pylori in the stool and can be used to assess whether the immune system is responding to H. pylori. It can also be used to monitor the efficacy of clinical interventions after known H. pylori infection. This is the same process used by the NHS in the UK at present, aiding in healthcare collaboration.
All of these standalone profiles are part of our comprehensive GI EcologiX gastrointestinal health and microbiome profile.
