We report a PCR-based assay for the detection of Enterocytozoon bieneusi. We extracted DNA from feces which had been applied to filter paper disks and evaluated four preserving solutions. Infected specimens were identified by electrophoresis of amplicons from concentrated formalin-fixed samples and unconcentrated fresh feces. Our findings demonstrate that this methodology is effective for sample collection, mailing, and diagnosis of this pathogen.
