Hi Claire:

Our new and improved finger-stick screening for Celiac Disease, known as the cdSCAN, was announced on November 1, 2005. It screens IgA, IgG and IgM against human Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) and IgA against gliadin. It is also a rapid test, which means the specimen is not sent to our facility for analysis - you have the results available to you in about 10 minutes from when you first collect your specimen.

Our original cdSCAN, which was introduced back in 2002, only screened IgA against human Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) and required that the specimen was sent to our facility for analysis.

You can learn more about our latest finger-stick screening for celiac disease at www.yorkallergyusa.com or by viewing www.yorkallergyusa.com/cdscan.pdf.

Sincerely,

John Kernohan, Director
York Nutritional Laboratories

This sounds fantastic. I went to the website, but I didn't see a cost associated with it. Since it doesn't need to be analyzed by a lab, I assume it won't be that costly. Does anyone know?

I just called thier 1-800 number, and got a real live person. That makes me feel a bit better about ordering. This just has the "too good to be true" sound to it, but I am tempted to try it anyways.

Yes.

I did their full food panel finger prick test.
I may now use this stick test to keep track of my antibodies, between doc visits.
