GI360 Complete

The Essentials Stool Turn Around Time: 15 Days

Description

GI360 Complete is an advanced, innovative, comprehensive and clinically-applicable stool profile, utilising multiplex PCR molecular technology, coupled with growth-based culture and ID by MALDI-TOF (>1200 bacteria; >200 yeasts can be identified), 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. GI360 Complete includes a broad range of stool chemistry markers to assess digestion/absorption, inflammation, immunology, short chain fatty acids and intestinal health markers including beta-glucuronidase.

Methodology

The test is broken down into sections:
Commensal bacteria and GI Pathogens measured by multiplex PCR.
Gold standard microscopy of parasites, worms and yeasts.
Microscopy of red and white blood cells, muscle fibres, vegetable fibres, pollen and Charcot-Leyden Crystals.
Culturing of commensal and pathogenic bacteria
Macroscopic assessment of stool colour, consistency and presence/ absence of mucus.
Elastase and Calprotectin - BÜHLMANN fCAL® & fPELA® turbo assays
Lactoferrin, Lysozyme, sIgA - Elisa
Carbohydrates – Colormetric
Fat Stain – Sudan IV
SCFA – Gas Chromatography
Beta Glucuronidase - Quantitative endpoint enzymatic (RUO)
Occult Blood – Guaiac
Stool pH - ISE

When should I use

Our most comprehensive stool test, the GI360 can help to differentiate inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) from that noted in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The test can be used to identify underlying factors in digestive symptoms. The dysbiosis index, based on PCR assessment of commensal bacteria, was devised using the ROME criteria for IBS and bacteria associated with IBD. This profile is indicated for gastrointestinal symptoms, autoimmune disease, joint pain, IBD, IBS, inflammation, food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies and skin conditions.

Other Details

When testing budget is limited consider:
CSA with PCR+ Parasitology (code CMI04), or
CSA with PCR (code CMI01).
H pylori and zonulin are available as individual add ons: H. Pylori Antigen Add on (code CMI20A0). Zonulin (Addon Stool) (code CMI45)
You can also order GI360 Complete + Zonulin + H Pylori (code DD005) if required.
GI Inflammation - calprotectin, lysozyme, lactoferrin & sIgA (code DD016) is available for retesting after therapeutic interventions
