Here's How It Works

What Makes it Different from the Other Stool Tests Today?
What’s nice about the G.I. Map Stool Test is that it is something that you can do at home. Fortunately, it is easy to do this test since we can ship the G.I Map test to you, regardless of where you are in the world.
It is an exciting and new health test that can provide the best out of all the other stool examinations and tests combined.
The test does so with the help of a new process known as PCR. It works by closely examining the bacteria’s DNA, which is one of the reasons why it is quickly becoming the leading solution when it comes to testing for bacteria.
While other stool tests that are currently available also seem to be based on DNA, take note that some of them only use matrix-assisted laser desorption (MALDI/TOF) as a means of detecting stool microbes.
The G.I. Map Stool Test is more comprehensive as it really performs a deep scrutiny of the problem. It is different than other tests as it makes use of a multiplex and automated PCR analysis technique, which makes it possible to measure multiple viruses, parasites, fungi, and bacteria simultaneously with just one stool sample.
Another thing that makes it different is its ability to do the DNA sequencing process with expertise. The result is superior specificity and sensitivity when it comes to detecting up to fifteen of the most common triggers of chronic diseases and gastroenteritis.
In addition, the test makes use of intestinal health markers, making it possible for it to analyze your gut microbiome comprehensively. It also makes use of inflammation, digestion, and mucosal immune system markers to make it even more effective.
