My son is scared of injections. Does FastCheckPOC require any blood taking or injections?
No. FastCheckPOC would only require a pin prick on the fingertip to obtain a small amount of blood for testing. Therefore children should not worry about the pain involved in this procedure.
There are many allergy tests on the market, what is so special about FastCheckPOC?
FastCheckPOC only requires a minimal amount of blood for testing, and therefore does not require venepuncture. It is a registered medical test in Germany and the European Union, and is therefore more reliable than those tests that do not have regulatory approval for diagnostic testing.
My son has eczema, but I am not sure whether it is caused by food or environmental allergens.
Your doctor would first assess your child’s condition and decide which test is the most suitable.
