Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.
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.
