Laboratory report
Laboratory report includes the results of the study: dysbiosis index (ID); functional imbalance - characteristics and ratios in the detected bacterial profiles with comments, prevalence (abundance) of bacteria. The report also contains additional information about the characteristics of individual gut bacterial species.
GA-map® – gut microbiota profiling platform
The innovative technology platform GA-map® uses variable regions (V3 - V9) in the 16S rRNA gene, which is common to all intestinal bacteria.

Molecular targets of bacteria are identified by multiplex analysis using single nucleotide primer extension technology (SNuPE).

For DNA hybridization, 48 molecular probes were used, identifying and characterizing more than 300 species of intestinal bacteria of different taxonomic levels.

The GA-map ™ Dysbiosis Analyzer software automatically compares detected bacterial levels in a patient, with those found in a healthy population, thus reliably differentiating normo- and dysbiotic gut microflora for clinically relevant results
