ALCAT Testing

 Alcat Documentation.PDF

The ROBOCat II instrument, the basis of The ALCAT Test, is an automated liquid handling system designed to measure white blood cells using the electronic principle of particle counting and sizing (measuring changes in electrical resistance produced by a blood cell suspended in a conductive liquid traversing a small aperture). This method is also referred to as the “Coulter” method, which is used in routine hematological evaluations. It has demonstrated a high degree of correlation with clinical manifestations as confirmed through a rigorous double blind trial. Drs. Peter Fell and Jonathon alcat-logoBrostoff reported an 83.4% correlation with ALCAT test results and double blind oral challenges with foods.1

The instrument is manufactured using Good Manufacturing Practices in an FDA Registered Medical Device Establishment (facility registration number: 1051901).

Food allergy is an IgE immune system response that is typically characterized by hives, shortness of breath, upset stomach and in some cases anaphylaxis. The most common food allergies are to nuts, shellfish, wheat and dairy. According to the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, only about 4% of the United States population has a food allergy. The ALCAT Test does not detect Food Allergy.

Food intolerance, on the other hand, is much more common than food allergies and is characterized by digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, aching joints, skin disorders and behavioral issues. It has been stated that upwards of 70-80% of the US population has food intolerance. Unfortunately for many, those food intolerance symptoms are often identified as individual problems and treated as such, thus treating the symptoms and not the cause. The Alcat Test is now considered the, “gold standard” laboratory method for identification of non-IgE mediated reactions to foods, chemicals, and other substances.

It is really professional and high quality.

I had a good visit today. My treatment went very well. I was relaxed and felt good about it. I really like when I am given the final treatment of the day. It is very relaxing and feels really good.

Knowledgeable, caring and friendly staff

While training for s half marathon I experienced sharp pain in my hip. I felt that it was the joint alignment and after 3 intense sessions My hip finally loosened up to adjust! I screamed with joy as as soon as I heard it I knew that is what it needed! Great Doc, dedicated to healing his patients, great and friendly staff throughout!

Robert S.

The sonogram treatment gave me the relief that I needed.

Great relief from overused muscles

Jeff is a great doctor and very in tune with what hurts on my body. He takes time to find why things hurt and then readjusts things to help my body work the way it is supposed to work.

Dr. Ruscitto is the best!!

Stephanie K.

Amazing Results

Please know that Dr.'s Ruscitto and Benedetti are the only licensed chiropractors in this area who can give you pain-free results in as little as one appointment. I am relieved of my back and neck pain after EVERY visit. And EVERY visit includes comprehensive exam and treatment. I highly recommend for pain-specific treatment and maintenance of a healthy spine.

Response from Lifeforce Chiropractic: Thanks Stephanie for the kind words, very much appreciated!!

High Ankle Sprain- I suffered a high ankle sprain during football season and was told that I would be out of commission for 4-6 weeks. With the use of the K-Laser and high volt galvanic stim the swelling and bruising was gone by the third day. At two weeks I was able to tape my ankles and get back to competition, fully two or more weeks earlier than was projected.

Jen Roland

I'm a recent patient at Lifeforce and I have to say I'd highly recommend them to anyone seeking a chiropractor in the Pittsburgh area. The staff is friendly and the doctor very informative and is evidently concerned about each of his patient's care.

Alyssa Brianne

great chiropractor! highly reccommended :)

Judy C.


Answer to my prayers!!!!
I was faced with the possibility of a series of steroid injections to my back to relieve chronic pain. I came to Lifeforce instead and after traction, adjustment, and fitting for orthotics I went from a pain level of 6-8 down to 1. Dr. Jeff and his staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and caring. With their help my quality of life has improved immensely.

Jeff O.
