- For details of investigations performed, see under Gastro-enteritis/enteric pathogens. Requests for parasitological investigation should be clearly indicated.
- The specimen container should not be filled to the brim (a walnut sized portion of stool, or
about 10ml of liquid faeces, is all that is required).
- Please ensure that any requests for additional investigations on the specimen are made within 7 days from the date of the original request.
