Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis

Having a healthy gut is central to our entire health.  Many people suffer from symptoms of gastrointestinal distress and a stool analysis can be very useful to determine the source of gut problems. 

Biological Testing Service (BTS) is the Irish service for the leading German micro-biological laboratory Dr. Hauss, near Hamburg. 

BTS offer a broad range of micro-biological tests for diagnosing candida, intestinal parasites, leaky gut and much more. All tests are performed from simple stool samples, a very modern and strictly scientific way of testing.

From a simple stool sample BTS can test you for:

  • Intestinal candida and other fungi (a full screen for all yeasts and moulds)
  • Complete status of the intestinal flora
  • Intestinal parasites
  • Pathogenic bacteria in different materials
  • Resistance tests for pathogenic bacteria
  • Pancreatic function test (elastase-1)
  • Leaky gut (alpha-1-antitrypsin )
  • Intestinal inflammation (PNM-elastase, Lysozym)
  • Intestinal immune system (sIgA)
  • Coeliacs disease
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Heliobacter
  • Intestinal bleeding
  • Tumour marker
  • And more..
