Allergy Test

The antibody Immunoglobulin E (IgE) plays a vital role in allergic reactions to many substances. Our test can pick up on specific IgE antibodies and pinpoint potential triggers. Your blood sample is analysed using the innovative technology and detects your body’s reactions to 294 allergen extracts and allergen components.

What is an allergy?

Allergy is an overreaction of your immune system in response to something that is normally harmless. In an allergic reaction to substances such as pollen, house dust mites, medicines, certain foods or insect stings, the immune system produces antibodies called Immunoglobulin E (IgE) specific to the allergen it’s trying to fight. The process of your body becoming sensitive to an allergen is called sensitisation.

When you have an allergic reaction, the IgE antibodies tell other cells to release certain chemicals, such as histamine. And it’s those chemicals that can cause the annoying and sometimes even life-threatening allergy symptoms. 

The test

The Allergy blood test enables the analysis of 290+ allergens using the innovative technology ALEX – Allergy Explorer. ALEX measures allergen specific IgE and total IgE. The allergens that are tested are divided into the following groups:

  • Pollen 59
  • Pets 25
  • Mites 19
  • Insect stings 10
  • Moulds & yeasts 13
  • Foods 154
  • Other allergens 14

We take a simple venous blood draw or for children can use a fingerprick sample.

The blood sample is sent to a specialist laboratory and analysed. 

The test detects your body’s reactions to both allergen extracts and allergen components, allowing for comprehensive precision testing right down to individual proteins in an allergen source. A comprehensive report is generated and shared with you once the results are available.

The test takes about one week.
