Stool FEME (Microscopy)Stool FEME is useful for the detection and identification of some parasites eg. protozoa, eggs, larvae and worms. A positive result indicates the presence of the parasite but does not necessarily indicate that it is the cause of any symptoms. Some strains of protozoa are nonpathogenic and cause little or no illness.
Cautions: Examination of a minimum of three specimens is required for the detection of > 90% of some protozoal infections especially giardiasis.
