IQ Patch Test Units
IQ - Inert Quadrate
The Inert Quadrate (IQ) chamber is the backbone of our Patch Test Unit line-up. The chambers are the most technologically advanced Patch Test Chambers ever developed. The laminated tape/foam/filter paper construction results in a comfortable chamber providing a unique closed-cell and leak-free system which defines a test area. The distinct corners of the Quadrate shape allows for easy differentiation between allergic and irritant reactions. This patented Patch Test Chamber design is found in both IQ Ultra™ and IQ Ultimate™ Patch Test Units. The integrated filter papers removes the need to handle loose filter papers.
