Personalized allergy testing assists health care professionals to more easily identify, treat and prevent allergy and asthma by combining molecular testing with a patient’s medical history, symptomology and a physician’s diagnosis. Arrayit allergy tests are manufactured and processed in the company’s Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) laboratory licensed by the State of California and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and benchmarked by the leading laboratory proficiency testing organization, the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
Arrayit CEO Rene Schena states, “We perceive significant synergies between our highly automated allergy testing technology and our newly-contracted network of medical sales professionals working on our behalf to promote allergy testing nationally to patients covered by private and public health insurance.
