Preserve stool in Enteric Transport provided by Legacy Laboratory Services within one hour of collection. See Specimen Collection-Transport Guide for Stool Orders. Fill the enteric transport vial until liquid reaches the line on the label, approximately 0.5 gm of stool.
Note: If a minimal amount of stool is received, it is acceptable to discard some of the Enteric Transport before adding stool. Keep approximately a 1:4 ratio of stool to Enteric Transport.
