Laboratory testing plays a central role in the evaluation of the immune system. This typically begins with screening tests, followed by more sophisticated (and costly) tests chosen based on the initial test results. The range of laboratory testing
available to evaluate the immune system continues to expand. This has been driven in part by the recognition of new clinical syndromes associated with recurrent and or chronic infections. At Eastern Biotech, we have included several new specialized
immunological tests to our portfolio that have high clinical usefulness.
Comprehensive Stool Analysis
Many chronic disorders come from digestive problems and inadequate nutrient absorption. Proper gastrointestinal function is needed to eliminate toxic substances, pathogenic microbes, and undigested food particles from the body to prevent health problems. Nutrients require a specific internal environment to be properly digested and transported throughout the body.The comprehensive stool digestive analysis (CSDA) detects the presence of pathogenic microorganisms such as yeast, parasites, and bacteria that contribute to chronic illness and neurological dysfunction. It provides helpful information about prescription and natural products effective against specific strains detected in the sample.
Food Intolerance Test
Food intolerance is an adverse reaction to a particular food. It involves the immune system and is a less intense reaction than food allergy. The symptoms can be unpleasant and in some cases severe but are generally not life-threatening. We offer comprehensive panel for food intolerance (200 plus parameters) which are a combination of various groups of foods that help to narrow the specific intolerance to a particular group of foods.

Gluten/Casein Peptides Test
The Gluten/Casein Peptides Test can determine the inability to digest wheat, rye, barley, and milk. These undigested proteins, called peptides, are associated with gastrointestinal, neurological, and neuro-Developmental disorders. The Gluten/Casein Peptides Test determines sensitivities, even when a patient has no IgE or IgG allergic reactions to these foods. If either of the peptide results is abnormal, both gluten (from gliadorphin) and casein (from casomorphin) should be eliminated.
Organic Acid Test
The Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. The test includes 74 urinary metabolite markers that can be very useful for discovering underlying causes of chronic illness such as behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function. The cause of these high levels could include: oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, and genetic factors. The OAT is strongly recommended as the initial screening test. The Microbial Organic Acids Test (MOAT) is ideal for follow-up to the OAT and is often recommended by practitioners looking for a specific abnormality, to monitor certain microbial imbalances, or to assess treatment efficacy.
