The GI360 Profile includes 6 component test bundles that together give you a 360-degree functional assessment of the GI system.

Here’s a quick list of the 6 parts:

  • Brand new PCR Microbiome Testing
  • PCR GI Pathogen Testing
  • Comprehensive Parasitology by Microscopy
  • Microbiology – MALDI-TOF ID of cultured Bacteria and Yeast
  • Susceptibilities of isolated Bacteria and Yeast
  • Stool Chemistries Testing

Introduction

The GI360TM  Profile: an innovative, comprehensive and clinically-applicable stool profile, utilising 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 GI360TM  Profile is a gut microbiota DNA analysis tool that identifies and characterises the abundance and diversity of more than 50 targeted analytes that peer-reviewed research shown contribute to dysbiosis and chronic disease.

The GI360TM  can identify the presence of 15 pathogenic viruses, bacteria and parasites using multiplexed, real-time PCR. Viruses are the primary cause of acute diarrhea, and least commonly tested. The identification of pathogenic bacteria, viruses and parasites improves treatment strategies and patient outcomes.
