The P88-DIY Dietary Antigen Test is the only report to combine IgE, IgG, IgG4 and complement (C3d) reactions to 88 foods all with the convenience of a finger stick but better, a powerful micro-sampling device! Traditional finger sticks typically have you stick your finger, and then collect on a card or piece of paper. While this is a start, there is not nearly enough blood extracted to run tests with many markers. The P88-DIY looks at 4 ways the body reacts to 88 foods, which means enough sample must be obtained to run 352 independent tests.
Unlike a traditional finger sticks, Precision Point Diagnostics has validated a specific pain-free process, making this test simple for everyone, even small children. The tip uses an “assisted” process to extract more blood. The tip functions like a sponge on the end of a pipette. Using these two concepts together, blood is actively soaked up from a very tiny stick (much smaller than traditional finger sticks), and the rest of the device acts like a pipette as the bulb is released, pulling more blood into the sponge. This radical new technology offers a pain-free way to collect enough specimen to run over 350 reactions to foods. Additional benefits include stability that is far greater than your average “wet” specimen. In fact, the specimen is stable for 21 days. The kits are small, and light, making shipping easier, and you can do it yourself, eliminating the need for a phlebotomist. This technique helps you to have more control of your health by eliminating many of the barriers that blood tests create. Precision Point Diagnostics is beyond excited to offer this groundbreaking technology.
