The Allergy test, which we offer is a very good test that was developed and manufactured by DST Diagnostic in Germany. You will have the result in just one hour at a cost of only €50 instead of €65.
Our test is an Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) that detects specific IgE antibodies. The test consists of an assay device that has been spotted with specially prepared allergens. We would need to take a blood sample through a finger prick; dilute it and transfer it into the assay device to allow any antibodies that recognize the allergens to bind to them. In this way, the degree of allergen sensitisation can be identified.
It tests for both food allergens and inhalation allergens. The kit includes the following;
Food Allergens: Egg white, Cow’s milk, Wheat, Peanut, Almond, Hazelnut, Walnut, Soy, Cod, Celery
Inhalation Allergens: House dust mites, Dog dander, Cat dander, Timothy grass (pollen), Common ragweed (pollen), Mug wort (pollen), Grass mix, Rye, Ficus/Latex mix, Silver birch
