Convenient, rapid testing for whole allergen groups
NALIA Systems is currently in early-stage development of arrays for allergy diagnosis.
NALIA allergy arrays would be able to test for a group of allergens at once, such as animal dander or food allergens, much more conveniently than skin patch testing.
Incidence of allergic diseases and airborne pollution are rising rapidly, so accurate and speedy allergy diagnosis will become increasingly important as allergies and related conditions place a growing strain on healthcare systems.
Current testing is largely carried out in specialist centres and can involve lengthy consultations over multiple days. A NALIA array for the testing of allergies could significantly cut time required for testing and reduce patient discomfort.
