[Histonet] Scabies

From:"Rathborne, Toni"

Hi all!I have a question about the proper way to process/prepare skin scrapings for scabies. We have had a few cases in the last year, and want to be sure that they are being submitted properly. Also, does anyone know where we might purchase a positive slide/picture to identify the eggs. With something that occurs so infrequently, the pathologist's would like to have a reference so that they know what they are looking for.Thanks,ToniCONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE
