Stool Collection Kit
- The stool collection kit is designed to make the collection as clean and convenient as possible. It includes disposable gloves, a plastic tub with adaptor to hold the tub over the toilet bowl, and a flushable plastic bag that is inserted into the tub.
- Only a small amount of sample is deposited into a vial and the rest can be flushed down the toilet along with the water soluble bag.
- Young children will need help with the stool collection.
- If the child is in diapers, a small sample of stool can be taken directly from the diaper.
