GI-MAP™ Interpretive Guide

Since the introduction of the GI-MAP in 2015, Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory has established itself as the leader in the field of qPCR technology and gastrointestinal evaluation. Now, we are pleased to offer a clinical Interpretative Guide that goes beyond reporting results.

The GI-MAP Interpretative Guide includes detailed information about all tested pathogens, describes the nature and impact of organisms found in the microbiome, and includes specific recommendations related to dysbiosis and intestinal health.

Download or print the Interpretative Guide and use it in office visits, when evaluating test results, and as an overall guide for deciding when therapeutic intervention is needed.

 

GI-MAP™ White Paper

In the last few decades, DNA analysis has transformed the field of GI testing. More than ever before, we are keenly aware of the health benefits and disease risks brought about by the microorganisms that inhabit the GI tract. The GI Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP™) uses state-of-the-art qPCR technology 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 microbiota and contribute to illness.

Read the GI-MAP White Paper and learn the science behind how DNA analysis can help your patients with gastrointestinal related symptoms.
