Microscropic examination of feces is a standard laboratory method for diagnosing gastrointestinal parasite infections. In North America, the ova and parasite (O&P) examination is typically performed using stool that is chemically fixed in polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and formalin, after which the stool is concentrated by filtration to enhance sensitivity.
