GI-MAP (Stool Analysis)

GI-MAP (Stool Analysis) – £350

The Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP) is designed to assess an individual’s microbiome from a single stool sample using DNA analysis.  Particular attention is given to microbes that may disturb normal microbial balance and may contribute to perturbations in the gastrointestinal (GI) flora or illness.  The panel is a comprehensive collection of microbial targets as well as immune and digestive markers.  It screens for pathogenic bacteria, commensal bacteria, opportunistic pathogens, fungi/yeast/candida, viruses, and parasites.

The GI-MAP measures pathogenic organisms that can cause hospital-acquired infections, food borne illness, and common causes of diarrhoea.  It measures viral causes of gastroenteritis, unavailable by other common stool tests.  It is one of the most sensitive tests available for measuring Helicobacter pylori and its virulence factors.

Finally, the GI-MAP measures standard immunity, inflammation and digestive markers including calprotectin, secretory IgA, anti-gliadin (gluten) antibodies, zonulin and pancreatic elastase.
