prueba para sangre oculta


Explanation:
guaiac cards are thin cards on which a mixture of the specimen and chemicals are mixed - if there is blood present, it turns blue. ( Just thought I'd brighten your day with that thrilling piece of knowledge!) Sometimes it's referred to as testing "for occult (hidden) blood" ... most often, simply called by the name of the card.
