Gastrointestinal complaints are among the most common in healthcare.

The most common symptoms include diarrhoea, constipation, bloating and indigestion, as well as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and malabsorption.
Clinical microbiology plays a pivotal role in safeguarding health by effectively distinguishing between beneficial and disease-causing microbes.
Most microbes living on or within the body are beneficial, so distinguishing those that are disease-producing is a critical function of a clinical microbiology laboratory.
Through meticulous examination of specimens and leveraging advanced assays and technology, the labs that RN Labs choose to work with accurately determine the presence of microorganisms and pinpoint potential sources of infection. This empowers healthcare practitioners to make informed decisions regarding the most suitable therapies, providing exceptional value to both patients and practices.
These comprehensive panels are the starting point for pinpointing the causes of gastrointestinal symptoms and chronic conditions, and measure the key markers of digestive and absorptive function and inflammation, all to guide targeted treatment selection.
