Post What labs can test for anaerobic bacteria
I would like to get extensive testing done for anaerobic bacteria to find out exactly what's going on.

It seems like doing a culture is going to be out of the question for most labs, so I figured a M-PCR could be possible.

Any recommendations on labs or hospitals that can do this properly?

Look up MicroGenDX. They do next-gen sequencing, which tests the DNA of microbes and detects up to 25,000 different species/strains. But I think you need to have a doctor's office, whether your PCP or another, order the kit.

That looks really good.

Kind of wondering why I havent seen this recommended more as it looks insanely comprehensive.
