Does Phadiatop confirm or exclude atopic allergy?

How reliable is Phadiatop as a test in order to confirm or exclude atopic allergy?

The sensitivity (to confirm allergy) as well as the specificity (to exclude allergy) of Phadiatop have in many studies been documented to be at least 90 %, i.e. more than 9 out of 10 correctly diagnosed individuals. Despite its excellence Phadiatop is not 100 %, but far better than could be achieved by diagnosing allergy without using any test, where the efficiency has been shown to rarely exceed 50 %.
