Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't refrigeration kill the coccidia protozoa?

When I was getting my collection of chameleons tested for that parasite, it was imperative that I DID NOT place any fecal samples in the fridge until I could run them up to my vet. I was specifically told too, once the poops got to my vet, I had to inform the techs there not to refrigerate the samples until they had a few moments to run the smear.

Food for thought.

I don't like reggae... oh no. I LOVE IT!
