Digestive testing technology worldwide

Our choice is Doctor’s  Data Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis

With or without Parasitology – 1 or 3 Samples

It is a combination of stool culture, really advanced stool culture methods and the MALDI-TOF method which stands for matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry

It is a proteomic method of identifying yeast and bacteria.  It works by measuring the unique ribosomal protein fingerprints of microorganisms.  These are compared with reference database for verification and identification.  It is  much more sensitive than many other technologies

Over 1,200 species of bacteria or yeast can be identified.  NASA uses this technology to detect

Microorganisms in launch vehicles.   It was ranked 3rd last year in the Cleveland Clinic’s Top 10 Medical Innovations list to improve patient care.

The test has inflammatory markers like lactoferrin, lysozyme and Calprotectin.  It measures stool PH and Sig -A which is a marker of gut mucosal barrier integrity

Short chain fatty acids like butyrate, and complete bacteriology panel as well as complete digestion and absorption markers.
