    To any interested parasitologists or testing labs,

	  I am a microbiologist at STERIS Corporation (Mentor, OH)
searching for
     a laboratory that could perform some efficacy testing with pinworm
eggs
     or any other parasitic eggs of concern. Briefly, this would involve
     treatment of the eggs with a hydrogen peroxide product and
determining 
     if the treated eggs are no longer viable. Viability should
     be demonstrated via an animal model infectivity test.  I have found
limited
     information in the literature which describes this type of efficacy
testing with 
     parasitic eggs.  Do you or someone in your department have the
capabilities
     to perform the type of test that I have briefly described?  If not,
do
     you know of any laboratories in the US,Canada or Europe that could
perform
     these tests? I would also be very interested in hearing if you have
any additional
     information that might help me out in this area.  Please contact me
by e:mail 
     or by phone,(440) 392-7703 (Eastern Standard Time). Thank-you for
your
     assistance.
