CLOSTRIDIUM DIFFICILE( C. DIFF)2014-03-06T15:01:03+00:00

Project Description

  1. Open the container, place small spoonfuls of non-formed* stool into the container. Non-formed stool is stool that takes the shape of the container (watery, liquid, very soft).  Formed stool specimens are not suitable for testing and will be rejected.
  2. Label the container with your name, date of birth, and time and date of collection.
  3. Return the stool specimen to the laboratory as soon as possible.  Specimens should be refrigerated until transported to the laboratory.

*CDC recommends that testing for C. difficile or its toxins should be performed only on diarrheal (unformed) stool.
