The Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology (CSAP) test is a non-invasive diagnostic assessment that allows practitioners to objectively evaluate the status of intestinal bacteria.
The gastrointestinal tract makes up roughly 80% of the body’s immune system. Thus, the function and integrity of this bodily region is paramount to the function and integrity of the body as a whole.
The Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology (CSAP) test is a non-invasive diagnostic assessment that allows practitioners to objectively evaluate the status of intestinal bacteria. This test enables precise identification of pathogenic species, aiding in the selection of the most appropriate pharmaceutical or natural treatments.
Cornerstones of good health include proper digestion of food, assimilation of nutrients, exclusion of pathogens and timely elimination of waste. To garner benefits from consumed food, nutrients must be appropriately digested and efficiently absorbed into bodily circulation. Microbes, larger sized particles of fiber, and undigested compounds should remain within the intestinal lumen (the inner open space) for proper excretion. Poor digestion and malabsorption of vital nutrients can contribute to degenerative diseases, compromised immune status, and nutritional deficiencies.
Impairment of the highly specific nutrient uptake processes, or compromised GI barrier function (as in “leaky gut syndrome”) can result from a number of causes including: low gastric acid production; chronic maldigestion; food allergen impact on intestinal absorptive surfaces; bacterial overgrowth or imbalances (dysbiosis); pathogenic bacteria; yeast or parasites and related toxic irritants; and the use of NSAID’s (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, such as aspirin and ibuprofen) and antibiotics. Impairment of intestinal functions can contribute to the development of food allergies, systemic illnesses, autoimmune disease, and toxic overload from substances that are usually kept in the confines of the bowel for elimination. Efficient remediation of GI dysfunctions utilizes a comprehensive guided approach that should include the intended elimination of pathogens and exposure to irritants; supplementation of hydrochloric acid; pancreatic enzymes and pre- and probiotics; and repair of the mucosal barrier.
Microbiology, HPLC, EIA
MALDI Biotyper® system to reliably and accurately identify thousands of bacteria and yeast. The system identifies microorganisms using MALDI-TOF (matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization with time-of-flight) mass spectrometry to recognize an organism’s unique molecular fingerprint. The technology has revolutionized microbial identification in laboratories worldwide. By measuring the highly abundant proteins found in all microorganisms, and matching their characteristic patterns to an extensive open database, the MALDI Biotyper determines the identity of microorganisms down to the species level.
