Self Tests reliable?

People have mentioned self administered test kits....are they accurate or reliable?  If so, can anyone recommend what is good and where you might get them?

Alcat, which is a site sponsor, has a full celiac panel that is as accurate. Click here to read more about it.

There are other companies like imaware that offer the tests, but I don't know which labs they use, and don't think they offer the DPG test that Alcat does offer.

Will do!   I was re-reading my long ago purchased book "Dangerous Grains", which was published in 2002, and he mentioned that a new type of celiac test was coming that used a skin prick blood sample and which could be done at home.  I wonder if this test I just ordered is exactly that!  

My test is supposed to arrive Wednesday, and I'll send it off right away, but don't know how long to get results.  Has anyone else around here used this particular test (imaware)?
