Cairn Spirulina Breath Test for Gastroparesis

Brentwood, Tenn., May 4, 2016 – Cairn Diagnostics, formerly known as Advanced Breath Diagnostics (ABDiagnostics), will be presenting its 13C-Spirulina Gastric Emptying Breath Test (GEBT) for gastroparesis at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2016 from May 22-24 in San Diego at booth #761.

The Cairn GEBT is intended for measurements of the rate of solid-phase gastric emptying and as an aid in the diagnosis of delayed gastric emptying (gastroparesis) in symptomatic adults. Approved by the FDA in 2015, the GEBT has been validated against the method of gastric scintigraphy.

The Cairn GEBT is a proven method for the rapid and accurate diagnosis of gastroparesis. The test is non-radioactive and non-invasive and can be administered conveniently at a physician’s office, a laboratory collection center or in a tertiary care setting.

Patient breath samples are returned to Cairn’s CLIA-certified clinical laboratory for analysis by gas isotope ratio mass spectrometry (GIRMS). The GIRMS platform is a validated, FDA-approved analytical system for conducting GEBT breath analyses. GEBT test results are presented to the ordering clinician in a simple, easy to interpret report.
