The Allergenic Extract Guidelines requires everyone who prepares extract vials to successfully complete an annual technical drill called a media-fill test. This is an actual, physical demonstration that the staff person can transfer material, in a sterile fashion, from one vial to another.
JCAAI came to an agreement with Valiteq/Lab Safety Corporation, makers of the AllerTEQ media-fill test, to purchase the test kits at discounted prices. One test is required for each vial preparer and must be completed annually. Click the link below for a video demonstration of the procedure.
