Hello,

Sometimes for parasite one stool test can be negative. So 2-3 repeated examination at the frequent interval recommended for parasite detection. Concentration technique can be useful for parasite detection. So you can ask for that stool examination by concentration technique.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Parth Goswami
