Skin tests are used to identify many contact, food, and airborne allergies. During a skin test, allergens are individually placed on the skin with an allergy applicator. The applicator punctures the skin in order to apply the allergen. The skin is then examined closely to determine which allergen caused a reaction, such as swelling or redness.
Edge Pharmaceuticals provides clinicians with a suite of products needed for allergy skin testing. In addition to skin testing supplies, we offer an expansive portfolio of diagnostic allergy extracts used in testing. Standardized extracts are available in 50% glycerin.
Once testing is completed, Xtract Immunotherapy Software digitizes test results, which are integrated with the patient’s EMR, and provided in a printout for the patient. Xtract is customizable to the provider’s practice.
