Phadiatop Testing: Help Differentiate IgE-mediated atopic allergy from other allergy-like symptoms

Brought to you by ThermoFisher Scientific

ImmunoCAP Phadiatop & ImmunoCAP Phadiatop Infant

Differentiating between atopic and nonatopic patients

ImmunoCAPTM PhadiatopTM and ImmunoCAP Phadiatop Infant* blood tests are initial, qualitative screenings tests. ImmunoCAP Phadiatop and ImmunoCAP Phadiatop Infant measure IgE antibodies to a well-balanced mixture of relevant allergens, which are often implicated in causing allergic diseases in adults and in young children, respectively.

Offering ImmunoCAP Phadiatop and ImmunoCAP Phadiatop Infant can add value to your laboratory. 

*In the US, Phadiatop Infant is only available through PiRL. More information >

These tests help clinicians:1-7

  • Identify patients with a high likelihood of allergic disease (that is, atopic individuals)
  • Differentiate IgE-mediated atopic allergy from other allergy-like symptoms
  • Identify patients who need further specific IgE testing
