    All-

    Thought I'd throw this up for those keeping "hot" scorps in the USA.

    Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Antivenom Bank, Miami, FL, USA

    Phone numbers:

    Within the M-D area call.............................911
    Outside of the M-D area call........................1-305-596-8576
    Non-Emergencies call.................................1-786-331-4444
    Email.......................................................mdfrantivenom@miamidade.gov

    Procedure for acquiring antivenin (costs of antivenin and transport will be billed to the patient by the hospital or medical facility administering the AV)

    1) ID of species
    2) Location of envenomation
    3) Symptoms
    4) Hospital location or transport locale
    5) Return phone number or contact information

    Antivenin stocked:

    Centruroides elegans, limpidus, noxious, exilicauda, sculpturatus, suffusus
    Tityus spp.
    Parabuthus spp.
    L. quinquestriatus
    Androctonus australis
    Buthus occitanus mardochei


    The Antivenom Bank not only carries supplies of scorp antivenin but antivenin for Latrodectus, Phoneutria, many various venomous snakes and even for stonefish envenomation!

    From what I understand, they plan on stocking any and all antivenins in the future so, that will even include rarities such as the antivenin for stonefish and B. mardochei!

    Ok. What I did was put a link in the FAQ section in bold red lettering to this thread here. I have deleted all the miscellaneous non-antivenin stuff and will keep it that way. Post only current information to these resources with a web link if possible. Also I would ask that everyone please try to keep the information that is posted up to date.

    Also...does anyone have the information for the poison center in Arizona? They make the C.exilicauda antivenin. Maybe someone has the information for the center in Mexico that makes the antivenin for the other centruroides species? We could probably find the places in the Middle East that make antivenin for their local species which so many of us keep.

    Thanks,

    John,

    If I recall, they have a listing of each antivenin's manufacturer on the Miami-Dade Fire Rescure Site.
