Our microbiology methods are aimed at improving the recovery and identification of gastrointestinal organisms and evaluating some of the most critical functional markers. Digestive tract infections and dysbiosis must be evaluated to determine a patient’s foundational health status. 

The #401-EXP Comprehensive GI Assessment – New Q4 2019

The new #401-EXP is a bold expansion of the core microbiology testing performed at BioHealth. It is the #401 with dozens of added organisms and functional markers (add-ons such as H. pylori and C. difficile are available). Now, in a detailed, color-zone report with interpretive comments, the bacteria and fungi we test for are detailed one by one for efficient review. Refer to this sample report.

And we listened to what our valued clients desired in the way of functional markers, which are included as part of this upgrade. You will now see if your patients have specific concerns related to immunity, detoxification, and digestion.

The new markers are:

401-EXP Sample Report
  • Elastase-1: Identify pancreatic insufficiency
  • Steatocrit: Excess fecal fat/poor digestion
  • Calprotectin: Inflammatory bowel disease pre-screen
  • Eosinophil Protein X (EPX): Subclinical chronic inflammation
  • Secretory IgA: Intestinal immune defense
  • Lysozyme: Indicator of gut inflammation

What Sets BioHealth’s GI Screens Apart?

True Ova/Parasite x 3/Proven Technologies

  • We promote a collection process which requires multiple sample collections, as well as thermally preserved samples, for increased recovery. Diagnostic value, as well as competitive pricing, sets the #400 series panels apart.
  • We do not pool your patient’s samples. Each sample is cared for with resource intensive methods for thorough examination.
  • Labor and time intensive Trichrome stain procedures are applied to each sample (no pooling) to increase recovery and reinforce the findings in other methods.
  • Our parasite ID and culture methods have proven to be clinically relevant and reliable for years. These methods avoid the pitfalls of new, overly sensitive technologies which leave many clinicians wondering if their patient has a problem or not.
  • Identifications are confirmed on an automated platform using optical signals generated by biochemical reactions.
