Sometimes we have to test deeper to figure out certain deficiencies or health issues. Mosaic lab does just this.
View the list of tests here. They can be ordered to send off to the lab from the Blue Z Health Office.
Three popular tests are the OAT test (organic acids test), the Comprehensive Stool Analysis test for more severe or complicated gut health issues, and the Mycotoxins test- to test for environmental toxins or mold exposure that could be causing your health issues.
Organic acids are products of the body’s metabolic pathways. Evaluation of these downstream metabolites from various metabolic pathways provides insight into important areas related to gut health, mitochondrial dysfunction, neurotransmitter status, indicators of detoxification and macronutrient breakdown and nutritional status. This makes organic acid testing a valuable tool to assess the functional need for essential nutrients, diet modification, antioxidant protection, detoxification, and other therapies.
The Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides a comprehensive nutritional and metabolic snapshot of an individual’s overall health. The OAT measures 76 organic acids from one easy to collect urine sample. This test costs $420
The Comprehensive Stool Analysis test looks for imbalances in gastrointestinal function can lead to both local and systemic health issues, with the gut microbiome playing a vital role in supporting overall health. Our Comprehensive Stool Analysis profile helps identify the underlying causes of acute and chronic symptoms, enabling providers to create personalized treatment plans.
The Comprehensive Stool Analysis measures key markers of digestion, absorption, and intestinal function, including a comprehensive bacteriology and yeast culture to detect beneficial, imbalanced, and dysbiotic flora. We use gold standard methods, such as PCR, to identify infectious pathogens and parasites, and perform antimicrobial susceptibility testing on cultured bacterial and fungal species to recommend prescriptive and natural agents. This test costs $450
Mycotoxins, produced by certain mold species, are some of the most prevalent toxins and can come from many sources, including buildings, vehicles, and food. These compounds have been recognized as a growing global health concern due to their acute and chronic adverse health impacts. Mycotoxin exposure can be challenging to diagnose without proper testing due to vague and often varied symptoms.
The MycoTOX Profile is Mosaic Diagnostics’ most comprehensive assessment of mycotoxins. Our state-of-the-art urine-based assay accurately assesses levels of 11 different mycotoxins, including Aflatoxin M1, Ochratoxin A, Zearalenone, and Trichothecenes. The MycoTOX Profile has been designed to help clinicians uncover mycotoxin exposure and guide a therapeutic strategy for prevention and treatment. This test costs $410.
