The Ova and Parasites test is used to establish the diagnosis of parasitic infection. An examination of the specimen for ova (eggs) and parasites is performed by conventional iodine/saline and trichrome staining. This will not detect Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora Cayetanensis, or Microsporidium.
People should note that one negative result does not rule out the possibility of parasitic infection. Repeat testing may be necessary for most accurate results.
This test typcially sees results in 3-5 business days.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Customers ordering the OVA and Parasites Test should go to the lab to obtain a proper specimen container prior to collection and review collection technique to avoid specimen rejection. Fecal specimens for parasitic examination should be collected before initiation of antidiarrheal therapy or antiparasitic therapy.
