The Allergenic Extract Quiz was developed to demonstrate that those preparing extract are doing so in a sterile manner and are following the current USP Chapter 797 guidelines. Extract preparation guidelines, a physician instruction guide, a list of vendors who sell media fill kits, and a copy of the allergy specific USP 797 section are available to help prepare for taking the quiz.
Successful completion of the written quiz demonstrates specific training and knowledge of mixing extracts and fulfills one component of the Allergen Immunotherapy Extract Preparation educational process. In addition, a media fill test must also be completed by anyone who prepares or dilutes allergenic extract. The media fill test is an actual, physical demonstration that the extract preparer can transfer material, in a sterile fashion, from one vial to another.
