Nutrition and wellness

SYNLAB has more than 20,000 professionals, including over 1000 medical experts, working on a daily basis to provide relevant, reliable and quality diagnostic information.

At SYNLAB, we are committed to health and we want to achieve new goals that will enable us to continue to be a reference laboratory worldwide. With this vision, SYNLAB is a  pioneer in introducing the first metagenomic sequencing test of the gut microbiome in Spain, also being the first laboratory to develop tests that combine the analysis of genetic and biochemical markers influencing nutrition, athletic performance and/or ageing.

Our Services

We have a wide range of analytical tests that enable us to offer specialists a fully personalized and comprehensive service aimed at preventing diseases and improving quality of life.

The hydrogen breath test is a functional test for assessing the presence of the enzyme to be evaluated.

Study of hypersensitivity to the proteins of 218 foods in the Mediterranean diet through the determination of IgG antibodies in serum.

The INTOLERANCE2 test is particularly suitable for patients with a clinical suspicion of coeliac disease and a negative serological study before undergoing an intestinal biopsy, or for patients with a positive serological study who refuse the biopsy.

Nutrigenetic and biochemical study that includes the analysis of 90 genetic variants (SNPs) in 65 genes, and 17 biochemical parameters, all of them selected based on the most relevant scientific findings in relation to the following areas of study: vitamin requirements, sensitivity to simple carbohydrates, minerals and trace elements, fats, body weight management, food intolerances, antioxidant capacity, and liver detoxification.

The test for DIETARY FATS in erythrocytes uses liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometers (LC-MS/MS) to analyse the fatty acids (FAs) deposited in cell membranes, providing information on their composition and functionality.

The VEGETARIAN PROFILE analyses the most frequent nutritional deficiencies in the vegetarian population, enabling the specialist to take a nutritional approach to rectifying any disorder.

The VEGAN PROFILE analyzes the most frequent nutritional deficiencies in the vegan population, allowing the specialist to carry out a nutritional approach to rectify any alteration.

The AMINOACIDOGRAM test is a study that makes it possible to assess the patient’s metabolic, nutritional and neurological status.

This is an analysis of mineral elements in the hair. The level of mineral elements in hair is more indicative of the deposits of these elements in the body than their levels in the blood or urine.

Nutrigenetic analysis that evaluates 27 coeliac disease polymorphisms and haplotypes in 24 genes related to: lipid profile, lactose intolerance, coeliac disease, salt sensitivity, alcohol and caffeine metabolism, osteoporosis risk, liver detoxification, oxidative stress, inflammatory response and homocysteine metabolism.

Study of different parameters that can be affected by our lifestyle.

It is the only test that combines the study of the patient’s genetic and biochemical profile in relation to the factors that most influence the ageing process.

The DAOPLUS analysis evaluates, by means of an RIA technique (RadioImmunoAnalysis), the activity of the DAO enzyme in the blood to degrade histamine ingested through the diet.

Evaluation of sleep disorders through the analysis of the melatonin biorhythm in saliva.

myBIOME is a metagenomic sequencing test of the gut microbiome that provides detailed information about the microorganisms that inhabit the gut and their functionality, their impact on health, and how to achieve a balance through nutritional recommendations.

Non-invasive method that uses liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) to evaluate the integrity and functionality of the intestinal mucosa by quantifying the elimination percentage of lactulose and mannitol in urine following oral administration.

Analysis of 22 urinary organic metabolites, 5 fungal and 17 of bacterial origin in order to detect qualitative and quantitative alterations of the gut microbiota.

Genetic and biochemical evaluation of markers related to athletic performance.

These include relevant information to assess the health status of the athlete. A correct state of health makes it possible to practice sport regularly in a healthy way.

SYNLAB offers different gender-adapted health profiles, so that women and men can manage their health proactively.

Blood count and key biochemical parameters to check the state of health of the man or woman.

Performs an evaluation of oestrogen metabolism aimed at people with an oestrogen pathology or osteoporosis.

Use of the most advanced and accurate techniques for detecting the hormones involved in thyroid function or that of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal/gonadal axis, including high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) or RIA immunoassays.

Determination of biochemical markers of bone remodelling to identify patients with a high risk of fracture, and to monitor therapeutic responses.

Lymphocyte study to evaluate the state of the immune system, aimed at people with viral reactivations, autoimmune diseases, etc. Lymphocyte typing profiles provide a snapshot of the state of the patient’s immune system at a point in time.

This makes it possible to detect the infectious aetiology of immune system disorders, identifying the factors that trigger or aggravate diseases.

These enable a complementary evaluation of the patient's immune, inflammatory and nutritional status.

IgG, IgM, IgA, alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (orosomucoid), haptoglobin, ultra-sensitive quantitative PCR and soluble IL-2 receptor.

IgG, IgM, IgA, alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (orosomucoid), haptoglobin, ultrasensitive quantitative PCR, complement C3, complement C4, prealbumin, albumin and ferritin.

This provides information on the principal means of communication between immune and inflammatory cells, as interleukins initiate the inflammatory response and define the magnitude and nature of the immune response.

This is an advanced lipoprotein test based on 2D nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy which is capable of determining the lipid composition, particle size and particle number for the major classes of lipoproteins (VLDL, LDL and HDL), as well as the particle number of the large, medium and small subclasses of the major classes.

The OWLIVER test is the first non-invasive test to diagnose non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) through a metabolomic analysis.

Genotyping test that simultaneously analyses 16 genetic variants with the highest predictive value in the development of type 2 diabetes while also taking into account the patient’s family history and anthropometric data.

Nota informativa sobre el ciberataque acontecido en Synlab ITALIA

El pasado 18 de Abril Synlab Italia se vio afectada por las consecuencias de un ciberataque. Como precaución y, de acuerdo con los procedimientos de seguridad de la información de Synlab, todos los sistemas en Italia fueron desactivados. Como resultado, las operaciones de Synlab en Italia se vieron suspendidas. Se estableció un equipo de trabajo con expertos internos y externos para mitigar el impacto, restaurar los sistemas y se alertó a las autoridades con quien se ha colaborado estrechamente.

Las operaciones fuera de Italia NO se vieron afectadas por este incidente.

Con fecha 30 de abril Synlab Italia ha restaurado sus operaciones y retomará los servicios a pacientes y clientes en Italia.

Synlab está comprometida en mantener los más altos estándares de seguridad e integridad.
