Infectious Diseases Society America (IDSA) 2010 Clinical Practice Guidelines
1. Due to the higher sensitivity, one specimen will be tested in a 7 day period. There is no longer a clinical need for testing X 3.
2. Patients must be symptomatic. Only specimens that conform to the container shape will be tested. Formed stool specimens will be rejected.
3. No "test of cure" specimens should be submitted. Patients may remain positive for long periods without symptoms.
4. This test is not FDA approved for colonoscopy specimens. Specimens collected during colonoscopies will be sent to a referral laboratory for testing.
