About the test

The GI360™ Essentials (2 Day) Profile is a comprehensive stool profile that detects and assesses the status of pathogens, viruses, parasites and bacteria that may be contributing to acute or chronic gastrointestinal symptoms and disease. It uses multiplex PCR molecular technology coupled with growth-based culture and ID by MALDI-TOF, sensitive biochemical assays and microscopy.

This test identifies and characterises the abundance and diversity of targeted analytes that can contribute to dysbiosis and other chronic conditions. It also profiles the microbiome, comparing results to a published normobiotic reference population, and identifies gut pathogens to help guide diet, supplement and lifestyle interventions.

The GI360™ Essentials (2 day) Profile includes: 

  • PCR analysis of key bacterial abundance and diversity in the microbiome
  • PCR detection of pathogenic bacteria, viruses and parasites
  • comprehensive parasitology via microscopy
  • MALDI-TOF ID of cultured bacteria and yeast
  • standardised susceptibility testing of isolated bacteria and yeast

This test requires two stool samples to be collected over the course of two days.

For more in depth testing, the GI360™ Complete (2 day) Profile includes this GI360™ Essentials (2 day) Profile with the addition of stool chemistries and beta-glucuronidase.
