The Parasitology profile includes testing by PCR and microscopy and can be performed on a one-, two- or three-day collection, based on practitioner preference. While parasitic infection may be an underlying etiological factor in several chronic disease processes, doctors often do not consider the potential for parasitic involvement because signs and symptoms of parasitic infection often resemble those of other diseases. However, it has been shown that parasite testing is a reasonable approach to the detection of causative agents for chronic gastrointestinal disorders.
Kit includes a one-, two- or three-day parasitology collection option and is up to the discretion of patient/practitioner preference.
