The Phadia Phadiatop test is an allergy screening test with excellent sensitivity and specificity for inhalant allergy. It uses an ImmunoCAP with a balanced mixture of representative allergens, including grasses, trees, weeds, cat, dog, mites and molds. A positive result indicates that the patient is allergic to one or more of these allergens; a negative indicates the patient is not allergic to inhalant allergens. Note that the test does not assess a patient’s sensitivity to food, drug, chemical or certain unusual or rare allergens.
