Microbiomix Metagenomic Microbiome Mapping




The Microbiomix Metagenomic Mapping test utilises metagenomic sequencing (shotgun), a powerful technique for analysing the genetic material of entire microbial communities present in a given stool sample. The term “shotgun” refers to the random and unbiased sequencing of all the genetic material in the sample, including DNA from bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microorganisms. Covering 28,000+ microbial species, this comprehensive analysis provides a more detailed picture compared to targeted approaches that focus on specific genes or organisms.

Since the sequencing is unbiased, it can reveal the presence of previously unknown or unculturable microorganisms to uncover the full diversity of the microbiome. Through a simple stool sample, this panel will provide detailed information on the microbiome, as well as biochemical markers relating to digestion, inflammation, intestinal permeability and more.

Microbiomix metagenomic microbiome mapping test was designed to assess a persons 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.

The test panel is very advanced collection of genetic material, It screens for:

  • Beta Glucuronidase
  • Calprotectin (Inflammation)
  • Identification of 28,000+ microbial species
  • Pancreatic Elastase
  • pH
  • SCFA- butyrate, acetate, propionate, valerate
  • Secretory IgA
  • Steatocrit
  • Transglutaminase Immunoglobulin A (IgA)
  • Zonulin (leaky Gut)

Common Conditions:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating, gas and distention
  • Constipation
  • Food intolerances
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Malnutrition/ malabsorption/ maldigestion
  • Poor gut health
  • Digestive problems
  • Unknown causes for gut health problems
  • Abdominal cramps or pain
  • Cancer
  • Gut flora bacterial dysbiosis
  • Leaky gut symptoms
  • SIBO
  • Intestinal problems/symptoms
  • Allergies
  • Weakness
  • Diarrhoea
  • Bloating
  • Fatigue
  • FUT2 gene mutations
