During a meeting in The Hague, The Netherlands, the IBiS Club evaluated the most important techniques that can be used in the investigation of irritable bowel syndrome, either in the context of scientific research or as a clinical diagnostic tool. In each of these, the relevance of findings made in irritable bowel syndrome was balanced against the applicability of the technique. The discussion of the group is summarized in this paper.
