Culture and Sensitivity
A fecalysis is a series of tests done on a stool (feces) sample to help diagnose certain conditions affecting the digestive tract. These conditions can include infection (such as from parasites, viruses, or bacteria), poor nutrient absorption, or cancer.
Help find the cause of symptoms affecting the digestive tract, including prolonged diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, an increased amount of gas, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, bloating, abdominal pain and cramping, and fever. Screen for colon cancer by checking for hidden (occult) blood.
You should collect your stool sample in a clean container. Store the container in a fridge in a sealed plastic bag if you can’t hand it in straight away.
