A urinary microbiome test for females from Invivo.

Chronic urinary tract disorders are highly common in females, with a staggering 1 in 3 having a UTI by the age of 24.

Disruption of microbiota composition and functions, termed dysbiosis, is common in a multitude of urinary disorders, including acute and recurrent, chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs) and interstitial cystitis.

The Urinary EcologiX™ test has been specifically designed to investigate the female* urinary microbiome by assessing key commensal, pathobiont, and pathogenic bacteria commonly associated with urinary conditions.

Using quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR), this test provides an accurate analysis of the microbiota abundance in the female urinary system.  As qPCR measures the amount of bacterial DNA present in the sample, it enables us to detect and quantify the presence of commensal, pathobiont and pathogenic bacteria that can sometimes be hard to read in traditional culture methods. This information can be used to inform changes in a client’s lifestyle, nutrition, self-care or other interventions.

Proper collection of urine samples for microbiome analysis is key to reducing contamination from the skin and vaginal species. To ensure proper collection the Urinary EcologiX uses an easy-to-use, clean-catch, mid-stream urine collection device allowing for a more accurate representation of the microbiota residing in the urinary tract.

People who might choose to use this test include people that may have:
Chronic urinary tract disorders
UTI/Urinary tract infections
Urinary tract disorders
Bladder infection
Kidney infection
Interstitial cystitis
Urinary urgency
Urinary incontinence

*This test has been validated for people in which the urinary bladder communicates with an anatomical vagina, inclusive of those assigned female at birth.
