Abstract

The increase in prevalence of food allergies generates a need for more accurate and reliable quantitative allergy testing in order to help diagnosis. In this short review, we briefly outline the history of food allergy testing and extend our comments to current multiplex techniques. Particular emphasis is given to new developments in the protein microarray area, where the use of recent advances in biotechnology has the potential to produce high-throughput devices with improved clinical significance.
