The GI-MAP is the first and only gut test in the world to be running full quantitative PCR (qPCR) on multiple GI targets, including pathogens, bacteria, worms, yeasts, parasites and comprehensive antibiotic-resistant genes, alongside intestinal health and immune markers.
The GI-MAP was designed to assess a patient’s microbiome from a single stool sample, with particular attention to microbes that cause disease or that disrupt normal microbial balance and contribute to perturbations in the GI flora and contribute to illness. With full quantification, we can now see the level of infection, thus the GI-MAP arms the clinician with accurate, actionable clinical information.
