GPX Panel

Our multiplexed nucleic acid testing verifies the existence of the following pathogens with one stool specimen in a singular test.

The GPX panel includes the following markers:

Bacteria and Toxins by PCR
Parasites by PCR
Viruses by PCR
    • Adenovirus 40/41
    • Norovirus GI/GII
    • Rotavirus A

The GPX is a multiplexed nucleic acid test that is designed to identify 14 various bacteria, parasites and viruses in the digestive system. Using this cutting edge PCR technology, this panel has the capability of detecting multiple pathogens within a single test run and provides the provider with sensitivity and specificity results of the highest standard. GPX test simultaneously detects and identifies the pathogens responsible for over 95% of cases of infectious diarrhea1.

Indicated uses for GPX: 

  • Acute and chronic diarrhea
  • All patients with symptoms and signs of infectious gastroenteritis or colitis
  • Inpatient, outpatient and emergency settings
  • Nosocomial surveillance

When ordering the GPX test, you will receive a complete, easy to use collection kit that you return, postage-paid (US only), with your stool specimen. We process your specimen as soon as it is received in our state-of-the-art facility and provide your test results directly to your physician, usually within three to four business days. With advanced PCR technologies, it is possible to measure hundreds of organisms, literally taking billions of copies of an individual’s DNA.

GI Health Markers

Our GI inflammatory health markers provide detailed information about possible inflammation that could occur in the digestive system.

    • Fecal Occult Blood (FOBT)
    • H. pylori stool antigen

Our GI inflammatory health markers are an invaluable resource for providers to determine the patient’s condition of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). IBS and IBD are both chronic illnesses and share many of the same symptoms, however, each is treated differently. If not diagnosed correctly, serious effects could arise from both illnesses.

Providers can select from our complete offering of protein markers to fully understand if inflammation exists throughout the entire digestive system. If providers are concerned with specific areas within the digestive system, individual markers can be selected for precise inflammation detection. These markers provide an abundance of information and has the highest sensitivity and specificity results of any digestive test available.

When ordering the GI Health Markers test, you will receive a complete, easy to use collection kit that you return, postage-paid (US only), with your stool specimen. We process your specimen as soon as it is received in our state-of-the-art facility and provide your test results directly to your physician, usually within three to four business days.
