The Polycheck System

Nowadays screening for allergic reactions is a central question for human diagnostic as the number of allergies and its clinical problems are increasing rapidly during the last years.

The clinical way using allergen provocations to the skin (‘Pricking’) or to the respiratory tract (‘inhalation’) which may be harmful to the patient himself can be avoided in many cases by the use of serological assays.

Biocheck is providing to routine laboratories a fast and cost efficient solution for serological InVitro Allergy Diagnostics: The Polycheck System. It enables screening and quantification of allergic reactions in patients serum in a single approach.
As no expensive analytical equipment is required, the test may be established also in small labs and at the medical doctor’s office directly.
Different allergen panels are for choice: Food, Inhalation, Paediatric –each presenting 20 separate allergens as targets (plus additional panels for geographic-regional specialities)
In Germany the refunding is possible by the public health insurance system (KBV 32429) but also as a private offer (GOÄ 3894) and the Individual Health Service offer (IGEL).

At MEDICA 2007 in Düsseldorf we are presenting Polycheck Allergy Diagnostic as Cassette-Format, its easy handling, its advantages (e.g. only 200µl Serum to test for 20 allergens)- and for the first time: new panels with recombinant allergens.

You are welcome to meet us on the booth of NRW (Hall 3 C90)
