Submitting in another type of sterile container without preservative is not desirable and may delay testing.Remove cap and place approximately 1 gram of the raw stool into the transport medium or a sufficient amount to bring the liquid level up to the "fill to here" line.
No more than two specimens per patient are acceptable without prior consultation.
