Birch

Take the diagnosis and management of birch allergic patients to a whole new level.

Use ImmunoCAP Components to

  • Identify “true” birch pollen allergy and patients for appropriate birch SIT treatment
  • Improve the risk assessment using allergen components
  • Improved management of patients with birch-related food allergy

Proper management helps you improve the patient’s well-being and quality of life. 

 

As in all diagnostic testing, the diagnosis is made by the physican based on both test results and the patient history.
