What's tested in your Comprehensive Gut Parasite, Worm & Bacteria Test Panel?

  • Bacteria

    Bacterial gut infections are often 'short-and-sharp' with violent symptoms that are over in a few days. However, sometimes symptoms can linger and it's worth testing for the commonest bacteria that cause gut infections. We use PCR to test for Salmonella, Shigella, Campylobacter and toxic E. coli (VTEC).


  • Worms

    Worms come in a few shapes and sizes. We examine the stool directly and look at it under a microscope to pick up microscopic parasites and any worm eggs. We can see evidence of roundworms, flatworms (flukes) and tapeworms. Sometimes we can also detect threadworms (pinworms) but in general the best way to pick up threadworms is with a swab from the bottom.


  • Parasites

    Two of the commonest parasites that cause chronic gut symptoms are Cryptosporidia and Giardia. We use PCR testing to pick these up.
