GI360™ Profile, Stool - Doctor's Data Test Kit

The GI360™ can identify the presence of pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and parasites using multiplexed, real-time PCR.


Test Code: DDGI

Also Known As:

Methodology:

Preparation: Ship to lab Monday-Thursday only. Please read all of the directions and the collection procedures prior to starting test. Please refrain from taking digestive enzymes, laxatives (particularly mineral or castor oil), antacids or bentonite clay, aspirin and other NSAIDs, betaine HCI, and activated charcoal for two days prior to and during the specimen collection. Refrain from taking antibiotics, antiparasitics, antifungals, or probiotic supplements, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), and Bismuth for two weeks prior to specimen collection. Never discontinue prescription medications without first consulting your physician.

Test Results: 6-8 Business days once the lab receives the specimen. May take longer based on weather, holiday or lab delays.


Details:

This is a three collection stool test.

Description

This test kit includes:

  • PCR Analysis for the Abundance and Diversity of Key Bacterial Populations of the GI Microbiome
  • PCR Detection of Pathogenic Bacteria, Viruses and Parasites
  • Comprehensive Parasitology by Microscopy
  • MALDI-TOF ID of Cultured Bacteria and Yeast
  • Broad Range of Stool Chemistry Markers
  • Standardized Susceptibility Testing of Isolated Bacteria and Yeast

The GI360™ Profile is an innovative, comprehensive and clinically-applicable stool profile, utilizing multiplex PCR molecular technology coupled with growth-based culture and ID by MALDI-TOF, sensitive biochemical assays and microscopy to detect and assess the status of pathogens, viruses, parasites and bacteria that may be contributing to acute or chronic gastrointestinal symptoms and disease.

Microbiome Abundance and Diversity The GI360™ Profile is a gut microbiota DNA analysis tool that identifies and characterizes the abundance and diversity of more than 45 targeted analytes that peer-reviewed research has shown to contribute to dysbiosis and other chronic disease states.

The GI360™ can identify the presence of pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and parasites using multiplexed, real-time PCR. Viruses are the primary cause of acute diarrhea, and the least commonly tested. The identification of pathogenic bacteria, viruses and parasites improves treatment strategies and patient outcomes.

This test is useful for:

  • Gastrointestinal Symptoms
  • Inflammation
  • Joint Pain
  • Mucosal Barrier Dysfunction
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Chronic or Acute Diarrhea
  • Abdominal Pain
  • IBD/IBS
  • Nutritional Deficiencies
  • Bloody Stool
  • Fever and Vomiting

The Dysbiosis Index (DI) is a calculation with scores from 1 to 5 based on the overall bacterial abundance and profile within the patient's sample as compared to a reference population. Values above 2 indicate a microbiota profile that differs from the defined normobiotic reference population (i.e., dysbiosis). The higher the DI above 2, the more the sample is considered to deviate from normobiosis.
