You need to contact the University of Arkansas Parasitology Lab (Dr. Eva Wray) before collecting or sending samples to ensure they can be accepted. Samples need to be received within 2 days of collection. Samples should not be sent on Thursdays or Fridays. Samples should be collected directly from the rectum or from a clean floor using an exam or OB glove. For a complete set of instructions, click here.
