Stool Specimen Collection

Stool Specimen Collection

Specialized storage containers designed to collect, hold, and stabilize stool specimens; products may be available in several sizes, capacities, materials, etc. Products may include concentration kits/systems, indicators, reagents, etc.

Stool specimen collection and handling products are specialized to address the challenges of obtaining patient stool samples for diagnostic testing. Stool samples may be collected randomly or over a several-day period.

Products for stool specimen collection include swabs, commode inserts, metal (paint-style) cans, and transport, concentration and sample prep, and other containers filled with various fixatives, solutions, and dyes.

Stool Specimen Collection for Culture

Stool samples for microbial or viral culture are collected in clean, sterile containers. Collection with a sterile swab may be acceptable in some situations.

Stool Specimen Collection for Ova and Parasite Testing

The ova and parasite test (O&P) is a microscopic examination of stained fresh or preserved stool to detect the presence of worms or other parasites or their eggs (ova). Stool samples for O&P testing may be added to pre-filled containers that contain preservatives, fixatives, growth media, or stains.

Stool Specimen Collection for Fecal Occult Blood Testing

Fecal occult blood testing (FOBT) is performed to detect blood that can be visually observed. Samples for occult blood testing may be collected using a swab or a gloved finger. The feces are spread on a test surface to which a developer or indicator is added. A color change is a positive result.

Stool Specimen Collection for Chemical Analysis

Stool specimens may also be collected to help detect nutritional or digestive issues. Stool samples are collected in clean containers over a 72-hour period and refrigerated between collections.
