Test description

This straightforward stool test is a simple way to assess the parasite, worm and microsporidia profile within an individual’s gastrointestinal tract.

Intestinal worms and microsporidia can be the cause of a variety of symptoms and illnesses. By using PCR testing, this in-depth profile can assess the presence of parasites, worms and microsporidia that may be causing issues, leading to appropriate interventions that can help to restore optimal health.

If parasites, worms or microsporidia are suspected but have never been tested, it is often recommended to perform comprehensive stool test first to assess the overall health of the gut, along with the presence of the infection.
