Allergy testing on the NOVEOS™ Immunoassay System:
Moving beyond “Bucket Chemistry”
Intended to help laboratorians and clinicians understand the systematic approach that HYCOR® Biomedical utilizes to identify vendors with consistent processes.
The Pain Point:
The key to moving beyond “bucket chemistry” in allergy testing is to tightly control the sourcing, analysis and performance testing of the extracts used.
Take away points:
Not all source material is created equal! The importance of batch to batch consistency to assure reliable results.
HYCOR Allergen Characterization process and standards
Testing conducted at HYCOR for each allergen to ensure that new lots of material are qualified according to their reference standards: Analytical Testing and Performance Evaluation results.
