GI-MAP: What You Need to Know

Diagnostic Solutions logo

The GI-MAP (Microbial Assay Plus)® by Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory is a comprehensive stool test that uses quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology to assess gut health. The GI-MAP test detects parasites, bacteria, fungi, and more by targeting their specific DNA.

GI-MAP’s qPCR technology provides the most accurate detection and quantification of clinically-relevant organisms compared to other methods. qPCR technology is widely used in clinical research due to its reliability, reproducibility, sensitivity, and specificity. It provides actual values of organisms present so that practitioners can get a complete picture of their patient’s gut health.

Optimize Outcomes with GI-MAP

The GI-MAP test provides actionable results that help practitioners create personalized treatment plans that target the underlying causes of:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Skin problems, such as eczema, acne, and psoriasis
  • Mood disorders, including depression and anxiety
  • Diabetes and weight loss issues warrant testing

The GI-MAP reports on pathogens, H, pylori and its virulence factors, commensal/keystone bacteria, opportunistic bacteria, and intestinal health markers that offer insight into immune health, hormone health, inflammation, and more.

Take your practice to the next level with GI-MAP!


Educational Resources

Use the GI-MAP Interpretive Guide to learn about all the markers included in the test and to find helpful patterns for dysbiosis, inflammation, immune-mediated food reactions, and gas and histamine producers.

The GI-MAP White Paper provides detailed information and scientific evidence regarding the development, methodology, and clinical applications of the GI-MAP test, helping individuals understand its significance and utility in assessing gastrointestinal health.
