Para-Pak C&S (Orange Cap) Please read through all instructions entirely before starting collection. If you have any questions about collection please contact your laboratory.
First pass urine in toilet. Collect stool in empty plastic container or place a plastic wrap over toilet and pass stool on the plastic. DO NOT LET URINE OR WATER TOUCH THE STOOL SPECIMEN. If patient is in diapers, line the diaper with plastic wrap so stool does not soak in fibers.
Using the vial, unscrew the cap with spoon attached. Collect the stool specimen with that spoon, especially from any area that is bloody or slimy.
Fill the vial with stool until LIQUID reaches the RED FILL LINE. Try not to exceed this line, as testing may not be performed if above.
Replace the cap on the tube, making sure cap it tight, and shake hard to mix well.
Wash hands with soap and water.
Fill out the label on the container, including your name, date of birth, date and time of collection.
Keep at room temperature and return to facility within 24 hours of collection.
