Many providers are seeing more and more allergy related conditions with patients. Healthy Plus’s Allergy testing program can simplify the testing, reduce costs, and increase testing compliance without a need for a separate appointment.
Are you currently utilizing Allergy testing?
With the ease of our innovative approach there would only be two additional steps to add Allergy testing:
Complete a requisition form for each patient
Conduct a simple finger stick and blood collection on a special collection card.
This simple process eliminates the need for a patient to return for another appointment, which increases testing compliance.
How much more work is adding Allergy testing to the provider office?
Convenience of Blood Collection - Using Healthy Plus Allergenex proprietary blood collection kit in the clinician’s office, four spots of blood are collected from a simple finger stick. The need to draw several tubes of blood from the arm is eliminated.
Increased Compliance - Collection of the blood sample in the clinician’s office assures a 100 % patient compliance. No separate appointment and/or visit to the lab for blood collection by a phlebotomist is necessary.
Multiplexing - Simultaneous testing of 37 allergen proteins and Total IgE in triplicate with controls eliminates the well-to-well variability associated with ELISA testing.
Speed to Report - Enhances kinetics of the biochip accelerates binding and the speed of test processing, resulting in efficient work flow and turnaround times superior to ELISA systems.
Accuracy - Each patient sample is tested for all allergens simultaneously in triplicate, with positive and negative controls, for unsurpassed precision and accuracy. Each sample includes Total IgE and 37 allergens. The dramatic test redundancy of the microarray platform enables high sensitivity and specificity values that are > 90%.
Positive/Negative Predictive Values - The high specificity and sensitivity of the microarray combined with a 37 allergen national profile and Total IgE delivers superior positive/Negative predictive values to clinicians as compared to smaller regional profiles performed with ELISA systems.
Repeatability - Allergen concentration and purity standardization coupled with advanced microarray technology provide high precision and consistent results
Calibration - All microarrays are calibrated and quantified for excellent dependability.
Clinical Value - Comparisons to skin testing and other ELISA methods demonstrate agreement in clinical indications.
Quality - Microarray manufacturing is performed in Class 1 clean rooms using advanced equipment and industry standardized operating procedures.
Source Material - Purified and standardized allergen extracts are utilized in the microarray manufacturing process to assure consistent and repeatable results.
