What kind of tests do you offer?
BTS offers a wide range of mainly micro-biological tests for the practitioner and member of the public. From a simple stool sample BTS can test your patients for:

  • intestinal candida and other fungi (full screening for all yeasts and moulds)
  • pH of the stool (included in the fungal screening)
  • intestinal parasites
  • complete status of intestinal colonization (fungi and bacteria)
  • pancreas function (elastase-1)
  • leaky gut (alpha-1-antitrypsin )
  • intestinal inflammation (PNM-elastase, Lysozyme)
  • intestinal immune system (sIgA)
  • celiac disease
  • candida IgG, IgM, IgA, IgE
  • helicobacter
  • intestinal bleeding
  • colo-rectal tumour marker
  • resistance tests for pathogenic bacteria
  • acute diarrhoea diagnosis
  • …and much more.

Why is this candida test better?
Very often intestinal candida is only diagnosed by use of a symptom questionnaire. Unfortunately several other conditions can mimic candida symptoms. It is therefore essential to be 100% sure which condition the patient actually has. Otherwise money and time could be lost for the wrong therapy. The only scientifically correct test for intestinal candida is to take a stool sample from which a culture is prepared. This will then show the species, strain and cell count. Based on this the lab then recommends the correct anti-fungal remedy and therapy.

What does the practitioner get from BTS?
Once your patient’s sample has been received in the lab, a full analysis is prepared and translated into English. The full fungal screening (candida, all other yeasts and moulds), for example, will provide you with a cell count of the physiological intestinal bacteria, the stool-pH, a full count of all pathogenic fungi and an analysis for the representative protease to identify if the candida strain is pathogenic. You will normally get all these details + individual therapy suggestions + diet + hygiene recommendations for your patient from BTS within a fortnight after arrival of the sample.
