My non-intrusive allergy test invention detects antigen/antibody reactions and has the potential to positively impact millions of allergy sufferers and prevent millions of them from being hospitalized each year. Being non-invasive not only takes out the risks associated with the current skin prick and blood tests, but it is also cost-effective and feasible with patients providing saliva or urine to be tested. Currently, the test is completed in a laboratory and detects dog/cat reactions, but I foresee this test not only expanding to test a multitude of allergens but also being as readily available as over-the-counter pregnancy tests.
