Gastrolab was founded in 2009 by Dr Paul Froomes (BMedSc MBBS FRACP MD), Dr Adam Testro (MBBS FRACP PhD) and Mr Jorge Tchongue (BScHons EMBA). Their vision was to provide a quality, accessible and affordable service to patients seeking answers to their functional gut problems.
Gastrolab is Australia’s largest and leading provider of hydrogen and methane breath testing. Our difference is our team of highly qualified medical specialists, scientists and technicians, and specialised admin staff. We use gold standard scientific analysers, follow best practice protocols, participate in external quality assurance programs, and follow internal rigorous quality control standards. All results are reviewed by the supervising pathologist. We also assist Monash University in recruiting patients for certain research studies at Alfred Health and Monash Health.
