Hi, stool analysis helps to detect infections and sometimes to detect malabsorption syndromes. If it is to rule out infection, you should collect your stool (faeces) sample in a clean container and store the container in a fridge in a sealed plastic bag if you can't hand it in straight away. Talk with the technician regarding the correct method for collection. Regards
