Abstract:

One of the most important steps in the diagnosis of intestinal parasites is the proper collection of specimens ( ). Improperly collected specimens can result in inaccurate results. Fresh specimens are mandatory for the recovery of motile trophozoites. However, unless strict collection and delivery times are adhered to, the specimen may have little value for diagnostic testing.
