HollisterStier Offers Comfort With New ComforTen(TM) Multiple Skin Testing Device

Provides 10 puncture skin tests at once with minimal patient discomfort

SPOKANE, Wash., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- HollisterStier's Allergy Business Unit announced today the launch of the ComforTen(TM) Multiple Skin Test System, its newest allergy testing device. The device features ten surgical steel 1.2mm lancet tips, which create minimal skin trauma for comfortable allergy testing. ComforTen is the only 10-test, self-loading, surgical steel testing device on the market. ComforTen is competitively priced relative to other multiple skin test devices available today. In addition to creating a more comfortable experience for the patient; little or no trauma at the negative control site makes it easy to read skin test reactions.


Derek Constable, Ph.D., Director of New Product Discovery at HollisterStier, said, "ComforTen was developed with the Allergists, nurses, and the patients in mind. We have made every effort to create a comfortable allergy testing experience for all parties. We're excited to introduce this new addition to the full suite of HollisterStier products."

In addition to the device itself, the ComforTen System includes trays with three optional-use spacers (patent pending) that increase the number of tests that can be completed between fillings. "We heard allergy offices tell us they wanted a skin testing device that maximized efficiency and the ComforTen System does that," Constable said. The trays are also supplied with self-adhesive labels allowing for customized tray labeling.

When used as directed, the ComforTen device with depth control guards will produce ten reproducible skin tests resulting in well-defined reactions. The device is equipped with directional indicators to help ensure the proper orientation and application.
