    Does anyone have any idea about occult blood?

    I am not sure whether it have to do tree days in the row or tree consecutive bowel movement? can we keep number 1 and 2 in the fridge until we get the number 3 and then bring them all to the lab? how long can we keep them in the fridge ?

    I remember my aunt had this test done last year but I'm not sure if it was three times or just once.  I believe the nurse said that it cannot be kept overnight and it has to be done in the morning and brought to the clinic before noon.  I would suggest checking with the lab to be sure.

    And, you were going to keep it in the fridge?  EEEWWWW!!!!

    occult blood screening is for testing if there is an upper gastrointestinal bleeding which suggests a possible colorectal cancer. usually people positive in occult blood have dark stool specimen. i don't know about putting stool specimen in the fridge because usually the specimen to be tested must be fresh. patients should take note what foods to avoid so that there will be no false positive or false negative results.

    @Wandereh: thank you very much for sharing  some experiences.
    @Jhudah: you really have a good idea. I was told to keep the slide #1 and #2 in the fridge until I get #3 and bring them to the lab. is it quality to do so? In the leaflet of HEMDETECT said the patient must send the slide to Doctor or Lab as soon as possible,but the test can be done no more 12 days? How do you think if we can not bring them immediately, where can we store?
