Microbiology Analysis

Why Use the Microbiology Analysis Profile?

The Microbiology Analysis evaluates stool for beneficial bacteria, imbalanced gut flora, yeast, and possible pathogens. Beneficial bacteria are organisms typically found in the healthy human gut that have effects both locally and throughout the human body. An impaired or imbalanced gut microbiome has been associated with intestinal and other chronic diseases.

The Microbiology Analysis stool test provides actionable clinical information for the development of personalized treatments to help restore intestinal microbial balance.

Effective for Patients Experiencing:

  • Infections requiring antibiotic therapy

About the Microbiology Analysis Profile:

Using a non-invasive, at-home stool collection, the Microbiology Analysis employs proven culture techniques and sophisticated MALDI-TOF technology for rapid identification of cultured organisms. The Microbiology Analysis evaluates for the major beneficial bacteria, as well as for additional bacteria and yeast that may have the potential in some circumstances to be opportunistic or known pathogens.
