Welcome to the future of allergy diagnostics!

Welcome to PiRL (Phadia Immunology Reference Laboratory) Center for Innovation. At PiRL we are committed to providing specialists with the highest quality, most up-to-date laboratory allergy tests available. PiRL is operated by Phadia AB, the worldwide leader in allergy diagnostics for more than 30 years. We are the purveyors of ImmunoCAP® Molecular Allergy. This menu of cutting-edge assays is designed to help you and your allergy specialist colleagues extend your efforts beyond current boundaries utilizing innovative diagnostic testing technology. Now available are ImmunoCAP® Allergen Components, a new menu of highly refined allergen component tests, and ImmunoCAP ISAC® (Immuno Solid-phase Allergen Chip), an initial allergy clinical assessment for the 21st century.


ImmunoCAP Allergen Components: Highly refined specific allergen component testing
Through ImmunoCAP Allergen Components, Phadia can now help specialists assess a patient’s specific IgE antibodies to various allergen components to further understand the risk for immediate hypersensitivity reactions. The current generation of ImmunoCAP Specific IgE blood tests offered by Phadia is unmatched in its accuracy and reliability for the detection and quantitation of IgE antibodies to complex food and inhalant allergens. The utilization of this new field of allergen components provides the next generation of information to help you characterize a given patient’s degree of risk for serious clinical allergic reactions.


ImmunoCAP ISAC: A broad snapshot for initial clinical assessment
The most advanced allergy assay technology—and one of the most exciting—is the ImmunoCAP ISAC, a multiarray technology package designed for the assessment of patients in the initial allergist office workup. Using a small blood sample produces semi-quantitative results for 103 allergen components—both recombinant and highly purified—representing a wide spectrum of allergens. This profile will produce unique patterns for every patient. This novel technology has been widely available in Europe, and is now offered in the US through PiRL.
