Ixcela’s science-based actionable approach, decades of research in the areas of metabolomics, proteomics, and genomics, and proprietary technology make Ixcela unique in the gut microbiome testing market. We don’t just provide you with data; we provide you with actionable results that can help you to make better-informed decisions regarding your health, wellness, and lifestyle. Traditional stool sample tests can be difficult to collect and only tell you what types of bacteria are in the gut.
Our test tells you whether your gut bacteria are producing the building blocks necessary to stay healthy.
Our approach is focused on restoring “Internal Health” using a sophisticated yet simple at-home test that identifies imbalances in key molecules associated with the gut microbiome. These compounds play an important role in many aspects of health, including: emotional balance, cognitive acuity, energetic efficiency, and immuno fitness.
Ixcela also provides individualized therapies that can restore these molecules to their proper levels through a personalized program of dietary and lifestyle modifications as well as proprietary supplements targeted at improving gut microbiome health.
Our pinprick blood test looks at the levels of metabolites shown to be associated with gut microbiome health. Our research is derived from in-house experimentation (conducted with pharmaceutical partners, nonprofit organizations like NASA, and academic institutions such as Harvard, Massachusetts General Hospital, Duke, and Mayo Clinic), peer-reviewed literature, and clinical studies conducted at other laboratories around the world.
The proprietary technology used to analyze the blood spot is the Electrochemical Array (CoulArray™), which was invented by our co-founder Wayne Matson.
Using Ixcela’s unique supplements and interventions, individuals can regulate specific metabolites that are not at optimal levels. Our comprehensive approach:
a) determines gut microbiome dysbiosis and
b) provides actionable solutions for restoring proper gut microbiome health, ultimately improving internal health.
Our scientific leadership team brings together proven, successful entrepreneurial experience and multiple exits with world-class performance and science. Our Pinnacle Award-winning CEO Erika Angle, Ph.D. (Biochemistry) partners with our Chief Scientist Wayne Matson, Ph.D., founder of ESA, Inc., whose many inventions include CoulArray™ and the handheld blood test used extensively in the 1980s to monitor childhood lead levels, amongst many others.
