Step 2

Access personalized requisition from your email

You will receive your personalized requisition in the confirmation email after paying for the test online. This requisition will be personalized to your order.

Step 3

Have requisition signed by your healthcare provider

Print and bring the requisition form you received in the order email to your healthcare provider for signing. Requisitions not signed by a healthcare provider will not be processed and our staff will not be able to accept the sample(s).

Step 4

Get a stool collection kit

You must stop taking any Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) two weeks prior to stool sample collection, as this can affect your fecal calprotectin results. Once you have collected your stool sample, you can visit any LifeLabs Patient Service Centre to drop it off. You must bring the same requisition you downloaded and printed from the order confirmation and had signed by your healthcare provider to LifeLabs in order for us to accept your sample.

Step 5

Your test results will be sent directly to your healthcare provider. Most test results will be reported to your physician/healthcare provider within 10 business days of sample collection.

Step 6
