Does anyone have info on Elisa blood test?
I hope I didn't just blow $144. Today there was a screening lab at the local pharmacy, including allergy testing. As it is considerably cheaper than the allergist, and I've only been checked for 7 or 8 things, I decided to have it done. It included 45 'regional inhalant allergens' and a comprehensive food panel of 90 allergens. I assumed it was a RAST test, but found out after the fact that it was an ELISA test.
I just checked the forums and google and read conflicting information. I'd like to know what the PA.com experts think of the ELISA blood test! Thanks in advance...
