As the world leader in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal conditions for the last 28 years, we know the importance of laboratory testing in a patient's care. Our disease-specific tests are clinically reinforced, cost-effective, and patient care-driven.
In addition to the latest testing, when you partner with us, you extend your network to include some of the world's leading gastroenterology experts. Our clinicians, laboratorians, and genetic counselors are available for consultation seven days a week to provide interpretive expertise and support.
Patients with diverse spectrums of rare genetic disorders can present with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). These patients often develop symptoms during infancy or early childhood, along with endoscopic and histological features of Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or unclassified forms of IBD. Our IBD primary immunodeficiency panel identifies variants within genes known to be associated with IBD and immunodeficiency that can help establish a diagnosis and, in some cases, allow for appropriate management and surveillance for disease features based on the gene involved.
Our gastrointestinal pathogen panel is a multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test capable of rapidly and quantitatively detecting DNA or RNA of 22 pathogens (13 bacteria, 5 viruses, and 4 parasites).
Mayo Clinic Laboratories offers the only comprehensive liver disease testing menu developed by clinical experts to help health care providers determine the underlying cause and rule out other causes for the disease.

Working closely with our clinical GI colleagues, we established several cascading algorithms to aid in the diagnosis of celiac disease. These algorithms, each with a specific utility, use automatic reflexing to perform the necessary tests and are available as orderable clinical tests.
Cascades ensure that testing effectively proceeds in an algorithmic fashion. We recommend a celiac disease serology cascade for most patient situations; however, additional algorithms—comprised of our comprehensive and gluten-free cascades—are available.
