How To Use
  • HOW TO USE THIS TEST: In general, stool samples are collected and smeared on the slides provided.
  • The slides are returned for processing.
  • Closely follow the instructions below to ensure accurate test results.
  • Read the patient instructions provided and be sure to ask your health care provider any questions you may have.
  • With a pen, fill in your name, address and age on the front of each slide.
  • After a bowel movement, take one slide and write the date of the sample.
  • Open slide 1.
  • Use the stick provided to collect a small piece of stool and apply a thin smear to Box A.
  • With the same stick, take another sample from another part of the stool and place a thin smear inside Box B.
  • Discard the stick.
  • Close the cover of the slide and store it in a paper envelope.
  • Repeat this process for your next 2 bowel movements to complete slides 2 and 3.
