Description The ova and parasite (O&P) is used to help diagnose the cause of prolonged diarrhea and rule out potential health problems due to GI infections not presenting with obvious symptoms. This exam determines whether there are parasites present in the lower digestive tract and, if so, identifies them for diagnostic and treatment considerations.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
