Urinary Tract Microbiome Check
The urinary tract is one of the most common sites for infections. The use of novel quantitative PCR technology accurately identifies microbes in the urinary tract, and provides important insights for those experiencing complicated urinary tract infections (UTI).

Traditionally the urinary tract was considered sterile but recent research has revealed the presence of a diverse microbial community in this region. This test uses advanced sequencing technologies to examine the genetic material of the microorganisms living in the urinary tract. The results of the Urinary Tract Microbiome Check can aid in understanding the microbiome's role in urinary tract health, links to complicated UTIs, and guide personalised approaches to improving urinary health and managing related conditions.

What we test
Sexually Transmitted Infections
Some STIs can increase the risk of developing a complicated UTI. For example, individuals with gonorrhoea or chlamydia may be more susceptible to developing a UTI due to the inflammation and irritation caused by the infection.
This PCR urine test measures:
Fungal UTIs are more commonly seen in individuals with weakened immune systems or other underlying medical conditions. Symptoms of fungal UTIs can be similar to those of bacterial UTIs and may include painful urination, urinary urgency, and frequency, as well as abdominal or flank pain.
This urine PCR test measures:
Complicated UTIs refer to urinary tract infections that occur in individuals with underlying conditions that increase their risk of developing the infection or make it more difficult to treat. Escherichia coli (E. coli) is the most common cause of complicated UTIs.

Helicobacter Pylori Check
1 test included
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a bacteria that infects the stomach, and is now known to be a major cause of peptic ulcer disease. One third of the population are believed to carry the bug, but many don’t realise they have it.

Parasite PCR Check
24 tests included
Some gut problems can be a consequence of an undetected gut infection. A significant number of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) cases could actually be due to undiagnosed gut pathogens.
