Microarray Allergy Testing is easy for Clinicians to utilize
Test as early as 3 months!
Wheeze Chest Tightness
Targeted treatment requires targeted diagnosis
Use normal test results to aid compliance with medications effective in non-allergic disease (decongestants, intranasal steroids)
Identity specific allergens to reduce exposure.
Formulate an appropriate therapy plan based on objective evidence indicating an allergic cause.
Decide if and when referral is appropriate.
Rule out allergies and get to the underlying cause
Formulate an appropriate treatment plan based on objective evidence indicating a non-allergic cause.
- Differentiate allergic from non-allergic etiologies
- Select a targeted treatment for allergic and non-allergic rhinitis
- Reduce exposure to specific allergic triggers
- Guide timely and appropriate referrals, if necessary
- Non-sedating antihistamines and leukotriene receptor antagonists will only work if the symptoms are caused by histamines or leukotrienes.
- Non-sedating antihistamines and leukotriene antagonists do not work in non-allergic Rhinitis.
It’s possible to provide a clinician with a comprehensive profiles test for 26 common food allergens, 37 common inhalant allergens, or 63 combined food & inhalant allergens…from a single spot of dried blood.
The power of the microarray technology does not require the enzymatic enhancement of the protein IgE-allergen binding signal. Therefore, it is possible to detect and measure the actual amount of IgE binding, resulting in a true report of allergic sensitivity.
By running all allergens simultaneously in triplicate, including positive and negative controls, well-to-well variability is eliminated. This further enables highly precise quantification of the relative sensitivity to each of the allergens. In effect, it is a personalized heat map of allergic sensitivity.
