Gastrogenius

GASTROGENIUS is a breath monitor for combined methane, hydrogen and oxygen measurement, that can help detect food malabsorption, sugar intolerances and SIBO.

The GASTROGENIUS is a portable desktop monitor which measures hydrogen (H2), methane (CH4) and oxygen (O2) levels in expired breath samples in response to appropriate substrates. It helps health professionals to aid in the detection of gastrointestinal disorders like food malabsorption, sugar intolerances and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) in a non-invasive way.

A group of patients do not produce hydrogen and would not be detected by Hydrogen Breath Testing (HBT) alone. By performing Hydrogen and Methane Breath Testing (HMBT) using the GASTROGENIUS can help detect those patients, who don’t produce hydrogen but methane instead or a combination of both.

The additional O2 reading in combination with a real-time traffic light dial and smiley face system helps motivate patients to provide an end-tidal sample. The GASTROGENIUS provides automatic O2 correction for more accurate results. With instant results, you can save time, without having to wait for lab results.

Hydrogen Breath Testing (HBT) is a non-invasive, sensitive means of detection for gastro-intestinal disorders. Hydrogen breath tests make use of gut bacteria’s ability to digest sugars and convert these to hydrogen, which is then absorbed into the blood and can be measured in exhaled breath. The tests can be used to detect gastro-intestinal disorders like food malabsorption, sugar intolerances and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).

A group of patients does not produce hydrogen and would not be diagnosed by Hydrogen Breath Testing (HBT) alone. By performing Hydrogen and Methane Breath Testing (HMBT) misdiagnosing can be prevented for patients who don’t produce hydrogen, but methane or a combination of both.
