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 component testing.

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.
