Quest Diagnostics Chantilly
2-10 g Random Stool
Collect fresh stool in a plastic, leak-proof container. Adult and older children patients can collect the specimen by passing feces into plastic wrap stretched loosely over the toilet bowl. Then transfer 2-10 g of the stool specimen into the plastic container. With young children and infants wearing diapers, the diaper should be lined with clean plastic wrap to prevent absorption. A pediatric urine bag can be attached to the child to ensure that the stool specimen is not contaminated with urine. Then transfer 2-10 g of the stool specimen from the plastic-lined diaper to the plastic container. Do not submit the diaper itself.
