Our request forms (see below) have been updated on September 16 2013. Please download them from our website.
Mycoplasma fermentans PCR Analysis (MycoFERM PCR test)
A separate PCR assay for specific determination of Mycoplasma fermentans is now available and we are accepting different types of samples (blood, saliva, biopsies, etc).
Contact us for more information. See our updated request forms.
Metagenomics Stool Analysis (MSA test)
A new, state of the art procedure for stool microbial population analysis is now available at RED Laboratories. Our metagenomics stool analysis is based on bacterial 16S PCR amplification followed by high-throughput sequencing. It provides a complete overview of bacterial populations present in a stool sample, including aerobes, anaerobes, and bacterial species which cannot be analyzed by traditional culture techniques.
See Intestinal Dysfunction Assays page for more information.
Nagalase Activity Testing Analysis (NAGA test)
Nagalase (alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase) activity testing on both serum and plasma is now available at RED Laboratories.
See Nagalase Testing Request form for full information on sample preparation and shipping.
Important note regarding testing
Only health care practioners (physicians) have the capacity to decide whether or not a test is necessary. Depending on the medical history of the patients, they will decide which analysis should be performed and the conditions of sample collection. Result interpretation can only be made by a physician. We will not accept samples for analyses which have not been requested by a physician. Results will be sent only to the requesting physician. We will not give testing advice, or test result comments, directly to the patients.
