  • Antibiotic Resistance Genes

To detect pathogens, the lab uses Real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), or quantitative PCR (qPCR), which combines amplification and detection into one step. qPCR “is one of the most powerful and sensitive gene analysis techniques available to detect the DNA of microorganisms.

MRT LEAP Food Sensitivity: Oxford Biomedical Technologies

  • Tests for 170 different items including: Fruits, Vegetables, Grains, Beans/Nuts/Legumes, Seafood, Meats & Poultry, Dairy, Chemicals, Flavor Enhancers, MiscellaneousDiet-induced inflammatory reactions cause mediator release (cytokines, histamine, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc) from various white blood cells (lymphocytes, neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils). MRT uses a patented combination of flow cytometry and proprietary impedance technology to measure subtle volumetric changes in white blood cell populations simultaneously. Volumetric changes after food or food-chemical challenge are quantified and reported as Non-Reactive, Moderately Reactive, or Reactive.
