What can I learn from this test?

Our test is ideal as part of an initial investigation screen if you have signs of IgE-mediated allergies, such as hives, redness of the skin, vomiting, and lip or facial swelling, which develop quickly after exposure to an allergen. A positive reaction to one of the mixes tested allows you to narrow down which substances are likely to be causing your allergy but does not allow the single allergen to be identified. So, you may need to arrange a further test for the single allergens in one of the mixes.

What can I test?

ALEX2 Allergy panel

There are several types of allergic conditions, this test looks specifically for the triggers for Immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated allergies. This type of allergic reaction typically develops quickly after encountering an allergen, and can cause hives, itching and lip or facial swelling. This test looks for IgE reactions to the following substances which are common causes of allergy in the UK: Food Mix: Cod Cows Milk Egg White Soya Bean Peanut Wheat Grass Mix: Cocksfoot Meadow Fescue Meadow Rye Timothy Individual Allergens: Cat Dander Cladosporium Herbarum Dog Dander House Dust Mite Latex Fish: Cod

Immunoglobulin E

Immunoglobulins or antibodies, play an important role in the immune system and help fight against harmful bacteria and viruses in the body. There are five classes of antibodies and several subclasses. In those that have an allergy, their immune system overreacts to a harmless allergen (such as food, grass or animal dander) by producing IgE. This reaction usually causes irritation to the nose, lungs, throat and skin. The allergen-specific IgE antibody test is used to check for an allergy to a specific allergen. It measures the amount of IgE antibody in the blood targeted for a suspected allergen.
