GI-Map DNA Stool Test 

The GI-Map stool test by Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory uses advanced DNA probing technology to help give you the most accurate results. Traditional stool testing methods allow viruses and bacteria to die before being tested resulting in poor accuracy.

Knowing the health of your gut microbiome (good bacteria) is critical since imbalances can cause many long-term gut issues. The GI-Map is perfect for understanding the normal gut flora.

One of the most useful features of the GI-Map stool tests is the ability to test pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria in your gut and test their genes to determine if they are resistant to certain antibiotics. Knowing this can help you and your doctor chooses the right antibiotic if necessary.
