The full initial nasal swab test considers both gram positive and gram negative bacterial presence, including Coagulase Negative Staphylococcus, a bacteria which, when antibiotic resistance is found is known as Multiple Antibiotic Resistant Coag. Neg. Staph. (MARCoNS). If the test is positive for MARCoNS the sample will be analysed for MARCoNS-specific biofilm. Fungi are also tested which can be useful if assessing dust samples/urinary mycotoxins/immune reactivity for exposure to specific moulds and fungi. Repeat testing can be undertaken for specific markers rather than repeating the whole test. This test forms part of our CIRS test panel roster, as studies show MARCoNS has a bi-directional relationship with the hormone alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone (aMSH) which is frequently low in CIRS patients.

Microbiology DX

Microbiology DX is a CLIA certified and licensed microbiology laboratory. MDX provide testing for those who are concerned about bacterial and fungal exposure related to the toxic ‘soup' found in water damaged buildings. MDX specialise in MARCoNS testing, but offer wider bacterial, biofilm and fungal testing so exposure can be assessed in more detail. Colabs offer technical support for results, and for more complex cases we can facilitate consultations with Dr. J. Musto, President and Director of Laboratory Medicine.
