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. One test is required for each vial preparer and must be completed annually.

Following is a list of vendors who supply Media-Fill tests. Although the Advocacy Council of ACAAI does not recommend any specific company, we do recommend that all personnel who prepare vials perform the Media-Fill test annually.
