Abstract

Total-Fix, Cary-Blair, and Para-Pak SVT parasite transport systems were compared to 10% formalin with the BD MAX Enteric Parasite Panel, using clinical and contrived samples to determine comparability and limits of detection. The three transport systems have equal or superior limits of detection for all pathogens tested compared to 10% formalin.
