Vaginal EcologiX™

Vaginal Health & Microbiome Profile

A ground-breaking clinical tool for the assessment of the vaginal microbiome – a key ecosystem for female health and reproductive optimisation.

By Invivo at our CQC registered UK microbiome laboratory.

The Vaginal Microbiome

The vaginal tract is host to over 200 species of microorganisms. It is a dynamic and complex ecosystem comprising fluctuating populations that modulate host immune responses and maintain homeostasis.

Disruption of microbiota composition and functions, termed dysbiosis, has been linked to a multitude of disorders, including: bacterial vaginosis (BV), premature delivery in pregnant women, infertility, miscarriages and increased risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Analysis and monitoring of the vaginal microbiota is therefore extremely important for health and can be used to inform treatment plans and lifestyle factors.

Establishing a methodology that is the most accurate we currently know of in the microbiology field, and using the latest technology was absolutely critical for us in the development of the EcologiX™ profiles. For this, we established an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced Scientific Advisory Board to join the Invivo Diagnostics laboratory team, and dedicated time and money to create profiles we are all proud of.

We use quantitative realtime polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), using TaqMan technology, to analyse the bacterial and fungal communities of the vaginal ecosystem and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the host health marker.
