96 Food Panel, IgE-US BioTek Kit

Note: This is a test kit that will be mailed to you. It requires a blood draw. It is your responsibility to arrange the blood draw for your kit and payment of your specimen collection.



Fasting Required: No

Specimen: Serum

Lab: US BioTek

Results: 7-10 business days

Special Instructions: It is suggested that you maintain your usual dietary habits and consume a variety of foods when possible within a couple weeks prior to blood collections, unless advised otherwise by your healthcare practitioner. Avoid eating foods that may have potentially resulted in a previous adverse reaction and/or anaphylaxis, as secondary exposure may prove fatal.

Immunosuppresive drugs such as oral and intranasal corticosteroids (e.g. prednisone, beclomethasone, fluticasone, triamcinolone) and topical cortisone suspensions and creams, in addition to immune-modulating drugs, may affect test results for antibody assessment.

Description: An IgE mediated allergic reaction is known as Type 1, or immediate hypersensitivity. Symptoms typically occur soon after exposure to the allergen, and range from mild to severe - they can even be life-threatening.

US BioTek runs all IgE panels on a sophisticated FDA-approved immunoassay analyzer that utilizes enzyme-amplified chemiluminescence technology. Chemiluminescence provides lower detection limits than conventional ELISA, making it particularly suitable for IgE detection, which can be hard to detect due to its short half-life compared to other immunoglobulins.
