Allermetrix, a College of American Pathology (CAP) certified allergy
specialty laboratory, is entirely owned by two scientists who have
devoted their careers to the field of allergy.
Jay Weiss, Ph.D. (Northwestern University, Tumor Cell Biology) has
been actively involved in immunoassay test development and clinical
trials for over 30 years focusing on the field of allergy. He has designed
and directed assay development programs for various substances
including: Total IgE, specific IgE, specific IgG and specific IgG4. Dr.
Weiss has served as the President of the In Vitro Allergy Diagnostic
Manufacturers Association, and advisor to the NCCLS In Vitro Specific
IgE Standardization Committee. He has published several articles
related to latex allergy and given numerous lectures on diagnostic
allergy assays throughout the world. Dr Weiss directs research and
development at Allermetrix and is currently focused on allergen
Gary Kitos, Ph.D., H.C.L.D., C.C. (Syracuse University,
Biophysics) clinical immunology career spans more than 30 years,
which began in an FDA approved allergy extract pharmaceutical
company. He has developed specific IgE and specific IgG4 assays and
integrated these tests into the reference laboratory environment. Dr.
Kitos owned and operated Allergy Testing Laboratory, one of the
nation's largest allergy in-vitro laboratories. His unique background in
allergy extracts and formulation coupled with his clinical immunology
background has formed the basis for his test strategy approaches in
the field of allergy. Over the years he has designed and developed
several allergy laboratory information systems (LIS) and was the first
to offer interpretative allergy patient reports. Dr. Kitos is the Medical
Laboratory Director and is board certified as a High Complexity
Laboratory Director by the ABB.
Allermetrix, founded in 2006 is built around offering physicians the
most sensitive assay coupled to the latest allergy information. Our
patient reports, both interpretive, color coded and graphical are
available in English and Spanish. When you or your office staff contact
our laboratory with technical questions, expect to speak with one of
our clinical immunologists, Dr. Weiss or Dr. Kitos.
