Idea Exchange: Skin scrape without the blade

VETERINARY MEDICINE

To prevent accidental lacerations during a skin scrape, I use a stainless steel microspatula with a flat-ended blade (Fisher Scientific). It is especially useful when a skin scrape for mites is needed around the eyes or other sensitive areas. This tool is just as effective as a No. 10 scalpel blade but is much safer. It can also be easily cleaned and reused.
