Dear All,

Does anyone in all of histoland know of a histotech, cytotech or biology
lab that is working with the testing of acanthamoeba. In short this is an
organism suspected to cause corneal problems. I am looking for someone who
can perform vitro tests for testing  the susceptibility of acanthamoeba
against antimicrobial agents.  In detail, the minimal inhibition
concentration (MIC) of contact lens preservatives against acanthamoeba
should be determined.

I would appreciate any information from anyone (techs, vendors,
pharmaceutical companies, etc.) doing this type of testing even if they are
not working with acanthamoeba specifically. You may either respond to this
e-mail or contact me by phone 319-335-7095. I would appreciate an answer as
quickly as possible. Thanks everyone!
