About Allergy at-home tests

Hello, I just found out that similar to "At-Home" tests that diabetics use, they also sell "at home" allergy blood tests that will tell you whether you are allergic to something or not. I know that it is not as thorough as the skin pr!ck test, but it's "something". Have any of you successfully used any? Any brand names or information that you would be able to recommend? Thanks.

I haven't tried them, but my friend tried the ones from Alcat and learned what some of her food sensitivities are from that.  They're expensive.  The skin tests aren't all that helpful for me.   http://www.alcat.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1, since I react to things that don't show up on the food allergy tests.
