MicroBiome

Atlas Stool Profile


The gut microbiome is a community of bacteria living in your colon. It plays an important role in the body, supporting proper digestion, protecting you against pathogenic bacteria and strengthening your immune system. The Atlas Microbiome Test analyses the types of bacteria present and their proportion in the overall microbiome. It provides information about the various functions of your gut bacteria, like the extent to which they protect you against certain diseases and inflammation, as well as what vitamins they synthesise. You will also get recommendations to improve and maintain the balance of your microbiome by adding specific foods to your diet. Atlas uses advanced technology to analyse the DNA of your gut bacteria. Unlike conventional laboratory analysis, the Atlas Microbiome Test not only qualitatively determines the composition of bacteria, but also calculates the proportion of the different types of bacteria in the microbiome.The 16S rRNA sequencing that is used for the Atlas test is more sensitive: it can detect bacteria that cannot be cultivated in Petri dishes (the method routinely employed by laboratories for stool sample analysis). More than 20,000 scientific articles have been published about the gut microbiome and its relationship with various health conditions over the past decade. Every month, new research is released in this field. We used these publications to develop an interpretation system that is now featured in our microbiome test. This research has established that bacteria in the microbiome are not simply «good» or «bad» species. Rather, how microbes participate in health or illness is dependent on their abundance in the overall community and how they relate to one another. The recommendations provided on your personal account have been developed on the basis of microbiome research by doctors and scientists. You don't have to change your diet. Keep eating the way you normally do - this will allow us to get an accurate picture of your “normal” microbiome and provide recommendations on how to improve or maintain it. You should only collect a stool sample in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms. If you have been taking antibiotics or a long course of NSAIDs or have undergone surgery, wait at least 3 months before taking the Atlas Microbiome Test.

GI Effects Microbial Ecology Stool Profile


A Commensal Balance Infographic – Designed to provide a more precise view of an individual patient's commensal bacteria (PCR) results relative to a spectrum of healthy and unhealthy commensal patterns. It is a composite of two measures: The Healthy-Pattern Continuum (formerly known as the Diversity Association Index) is a progressive ranking scale based on a Genova proprietary algorithm that differentiates healthy and unhealthy commensal patterns. This algorithm is applied to an individual patient's GI Effects commensal bacteria (PCR) findings, and produces a numeric result ranging from 0 to 10. It is denoted by the 'y' axis of the Commensal Balance infographic. The Reference Variance Score reflects the total number of an individual patient's commensal bacteria (PCR) results that are out of reference range. This number ranges from zero to 24, and is denoted by the 'x' axis of the Commensal Balance infographic. Commensal Bacteria Clinical Associations Chart – Patient results are compared to commensal bacteria (PCR) and biomarker patterns seen in patients with specific clinical conditions:
