Skin Test Devices at a Glance

HollisterStier Allergy’s skin test device systems provide healthcare professionals with a quick, easy setup. Experience an efficient and reproducible testing experience with ComforTen® and Quintip®.

Designed with You in Mind

Our skin test device systems are designed to save you time and money. After receiving feedback from nurses in the allergy field, we designed:

  • A translucent tray for easy antigen inspection
  • Removable reservoirs to minimize mistakes
  • Collars to prevent foreign material and evaporation
  • 1.2mm lancet tips with depth control guards for reproducible results and minimal patient discomfort

HollisterStier’s skin test devices produce a 0mm reaction at the negative control site, allowing readings of 3mm+ to read positive.1,2,3,4
