This French company has been working for some time on a patch solution that would be capable of providing a painless and safe method of diagnosing and treating a range of allergies, both of the food and the non-food variety.

Alternative treatment methods like oral treatments or injections are not suitable for this patient profile, so the patch is just perfect for this task. The diagram below demonstrates some of the technology behind the patch, including the crucial condensation chamber.
