Unless otherwise instructed by the physician, the patient should proceed as follows:
Get 1 - 3 stool containers in the laboratory or clinic.
Do not take the sample for the first three days of your period or if you have bleeding hemorrhoids or blood in your urine.
Alcohol, aspirin, and other medications for digestive tract problems can cause gastrointestinal irritation, which is reflected by bleeding. Such substances should not be taken for 48 hours before testing.
No diet required.
Apply the collected stool sample to a clean and dry sample storage container. The most reliable results are obtained if the test is performed within 6 hours after the sample is taken. If you do not take the test within 6 hours of the sample taken, it can be stored at 2-8 ° C for 3 days.
For better detection of intermittent bleeding, we recommend collecting samples 3 days in a row or have the sample collected from 3 consecutive discharges into three different containers.
