HYTEC 288 Plus

A Breath of Fresh Air - HYCOR's Broad Array of Allergy Tests


There is increasing concern about the growing incidence of allergies, which creates a definitive need for the benefits of serum-based IgE Allergy testing. HYCOR's line of Allergy tests provides clinicians with important information that helps them effectively manage their patient's care. HYCOR Allergy tests are based on HYCOR's activated cellulose solid-phase technology, with demonstrated equivalence to fluorescence enzyme immunoassay (FEIA). *
