Test with Confidence. 

CAIRN Diagnostics 13C-Spirulina Gastric Emptying Breath Test (GEBT) is intended for use in the measurement of the rate of gastric emptying of solids and as an aid in the diagnosis of delayed gastric emptying (gastroparesis) in adults. GEBT is an FDA-approved, non-radioactive, non-invasive, orally administered, standardized, office-based test. GEBT was validated against the 4-hour gold standard reference method of gastric scintigraphy.  GEBT can be administered in the physician’s office and does not require specialized imaging equipment, licensed facilities or personnel, or radioactive material.  Breath samples are sent by overnight courier to Cairn’s CLIA clinical laboratory and analyzed on FDA approved, high precision, gas isotope ratio mass spectrometers. A comprehensive gastric emptying report is then sent to the ordering physician.

  • 13C-Spirulina Gastric Emptying Breath Test (GEBT)
    While the Cairn GEBT is simple to administer in any clinical setting, the test meal has been manufactured under highly-controlled drug manufacturing procedures and patient breath samples are analyzed using sophisticated gas isotope ratio mass spectrometry, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved, validated analytical system.

    The test is conducted over a four-hour evaluation period after an eight-hour fast and is designed to show how rapidly the stomach empties solids by measuring carbon dioxide in a patient’s breath. Pre-meal breath samples are collected at the start of the test. Patients then eat a special test meal. After consuming the meal, additional breath samples are collected at specified times. The special meal includes a precisely formulated scrambled egg mix containing pharmaceutical-grade Spirulina, a safe, nutritional blue green algae that, during manufacturing, has been enriched with carbon-13. Once the test meal is consumed, the carbon-13 in the Cairn GEBT test meal gives rise to carbon-13 labeled CO2, or 13CO2, which can be measured in the patient’s breath samples. The rate of 13CO2 excretion is proportional to the rate of gastric emptying.
