Mixing Allergens

Once you have interpreted the skin test results and decided to prescribe subcutaneous allergen immunotherapy, the next step is to create the patient’s treatment vials. This can either be ordered directly from ALK as a patient treatment set or mixed in your office from bulk concentrates.

As you begin to mix individual treatment vials, you will need to understand some key principles regarding the mixing of different allergens. Two important principles to consider are: 1) The use of aseptic mixing techniques to maintain sterility and, 2) the compatibility of different allergen extracts.
