Patch testing is a process to detect allergic contact dermatitis to something a person has contacted at home, leisure or at work. It involves applying patches with test substances in small chambers to a person’s back. The patches are secured with hypoallergenic tapes. No needle pricking is involved.
The Chemotechnique Patch Test products are the result of decades of product refinement. The compositions of the Patch Test Hapten Series are determined in close co-operation with national and international Contact Dermatitis groups. Chemotechnique has provided Patch Test solutions since 1981 and is proudly recognized as the Trusted name in Patch Testing.
Comprised of the 60 most common substances known to cause skin allergies in Australia, Chemotechnique Diagnostics Australian Baseline Series 2017 offers superior diagnostic ability and is the recommended series for the general screening of patients with suspected allergic contact dermatitis in Australia. Chemotechnique Diagnostics is the only company to manufacture all 60 of the haptens included within the Australian Baseline Series 2017.
