GI Effects® Stool Profile

GI Effects® Stool Profile by Genova Diagnostics

The GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile is the stool test of choice for optimizing clinical value in managing gut health and has been enhanced to now offer:

  • Further insight into gut flora by identifying 24 Commensal Bacteria targets using PCR technology
  • Identification of parasites using O&P technology
  • Biomarkers indicating levels of digestive and absorptive functions, as well as potential issues with gut inflammation and immunology

Why use targeted stool testing? 
Gastrointestinal function is critical for good health. The intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria which, when imbalanced, scientific literature has associated with a wide variety of common illnesses including, but not limited to:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular Disease

Additionally, balancing gut microbiota is key for improving core gastrointestinal functions, such as digestion and absorption of nutrients, as well as metabolic functions. Poor digestion and malabsorption may impact immune function, optimum nutritional status, and mood.

Why is the GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile the best stool test for gastrointestinal diagnostics?
By evaluating targeted biomarkers, the GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile can reveal hidden conditions that other stool tests may overlook. Now with the use of Calprotectin, the GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile is a simple, yet more superior stool test that has the ability to differentiate Irritable Bowel Syndrome from Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Other benefits include:
 

  • More Actionable Results 
    GI Effects Stool Profiles utilize the best technologies available to manage gut health, including enhanced molecular (PCR) technical performance, an expanded number of commensal targets, detection of parasites, and premier inflammatory and metabolic biomarkers – all designed to increase the prevalence of clinically actionable results.
     
  • Enhanced Clinical Utility 
    Our value-added report provides Interpretation At-a-Glance that provides immediate treatment insight via key biomarkers for Infection, Inflammation, Insufficiency, and Imbalances by using graphics designed to place immediate focus on the big picture. The Interpretation At-a-Glance also summarizes commensal bacterial patterns into global markers of gut health in a Diversity Association graphic. As well, our Relative Abundance graphic provides a comparison of the patient's microbial abundance to a healthy cohort of patients.
     
  • Option of 1-Day or 3-Day Specimen Collection 
    Our GI Effects Stool Profiles allow the choice of either one- or three-day collection, based on your approach to diagnosis and the needs of your patient.
     
  • NEW Biomarkers & Add-ons
    The GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile now includes biomarkers such as Calprotectin and Pancreatic Elastase 1, as well as premier inflammatory and metabolic biomarkers such as EPX and Beta-glucaronidase. It also offers five additional add-ons – including EIA assessment of pathogenic bacteria – for greater utility: HpSA - H.pylori, Campylobacterspp, Clostridium difficileShiga toxin E. coli andFecal Lactoferrin.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
