Diagnostic testing is an essential tool for the evaluation of the allergic patient. Percutaneous skin testing ranks first in confirming the presence of IgE-mediated sensitization in the clinician’s office. Prick or scratch testing (also referred to as percutaneous) is minimally invasive, and when it is performed correctly it has good reproducibility, is easily quantified, and allows for the evaluation of multiple allergens in one session.1
HollisterStier Allergy offers a wide-range of diagnostic products, including 5mL scratch vials of allergenic extracts, Histamine positive control, and 50% Glycerin negative control. In addition, HollisterStier offers two unique skin test systems. Our skin test devices are equipped with 1.2 mm stainless surgical steel tips that penetrate uniformly to obtain reproducible, well-defined reactions with minimal discomfort and trauma to your patients.
