Please be aware that several send-out tests will be temporarily unavailable to order, as supply shortages impacting the grey and pink parapak kits used for the collection of stool specimen have impacted the reference laboratories in which Aculabs utilizes for such send-out testing.

The following are the most commonly ordered tests to be impacted:

  • #Z2359 – Cryptosporidium Parvum
  • #Z2360 – Cyclospora

Both tests are commonly used in the detection of an infectious disease caused by parasitic protozoan or other bacteria usually associated and present in human feces, located within the intestinal tract of the human body.

We appreciate your understanding at this time and will update all clients when our reference laboratory informs us that the supply issues have been resolved.
