In vitro allergy testing has been utilized, in various methods, for almost 100 years. This chapter will primarily focus on clinically available laboratory allergy testing. Details on how the specific allergy tests are conducted and performed will be reviewed. Current clinical correlation of specific allergy test results is discussed. Practical utilization and limitations on in vitro IgE and IgG testing will be explored. Brief introduction to experimental in vitro allergy testing for research is covered.
