Why Ixcela?

What you measure matters.


Ixcela measures what’s
currently happening.

Unlike stool samples that simply tell you how much bacteria pass through your colon on any given day, the Ixcela test measures if the bacteria in your gut are doing their job to keep you healthy.


You get specific, actionable
results and guidance.

Ixcela is not your typical lab report. Easy-to-understand results help you identify what you need to do to improve your health.


No poop scooping.

Collecting your stool is, well, unpleasant. The Ixcela test uses about five drops of blood. It’s quick, mess-free, and you don’t have to wait for your body to be ready.
