Oregon State Public Health Laboratory
An enteric outbreak specimen kit has been developed to facilitate specimen collection. It contains everything a patient needs to collect a specimen. If there is any possibility that bacterial pathogen testing might be desired, a Cary Blair specimen needs to be submitted to OSPHL along with the raw stool specimen.
To order: Collection kits can be ordered using the Stockroom Order Request form (pdf).
The documents below give instructions for local health department staff and patients on how to collect a stool specimen. The patient instructions are in English and Spanish.
