[Histonet] Tzanck Stain Proficiency Testing

From:"Gladney, Diane C Ms MACH"

Hi Fellow Histonetters,
We have a new Dermatologist that wants to perform Tzanck Stain on skin
smears in his clinic. Out QA/QC manager asked me to find out if there is
a Proficiency Test available (like a survey from CAP) for this stain.
We are looking to get the dermatologist his own CLIP certificate and
this stain is considered moderate complexity testing. I am not even sure
if a proficiency test even exists for this stain. Does anyone out there
in Histonet Land have any info on this or some guidance that I may share
with our QA/QC manager?
As always, I know that if it is available, someone on Histonet will
know. Thanks in advance for your help.
