G. lamblia is not reliably found in stools by microscopic examination, so the 'string test' is used to test for it, in which a capsule is swallowed by the patient, the capsule dissolves to expose a weighted rubber bag which enters the bowel.  The bag is drawn up and examined for the bacteria.  Yes, it sounds crazy, but it's true!
