The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology recommends anyone who prepares extract, takes the Allergenic Extract Preparation Quiz, media-fill test and gloved fingertip-thumb sampling tests annually.
The Allergenic Extract Quiz was developed to demonstrate that those preparing extract are doing so in a sterile manner and are following the 2019 USP Chapter 797 guidelines.
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.
College members may take the quiz at no charge.
