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 collection, 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. Do not perform this test if you are taking blood thinning medications or if you have a blood clotting disorder unless authorized by your healthcare practitioner.

Immunosuppressive 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: Aeroallergens from trees, grasses, mold, dust, and others can produce symptoms that range from minor to severe in affected individuals. Our 50 Inhalant IgE Panel assesses antibody response to 50 airborne allergens, providing helpful information for effective allergy management.

Specimens are tested in duplicate on ELISA platform. US BioTek follows a diligent process to extract the key component from each analyte to ensure the antibody present in the patients’ serum will bind to it, and validate with positive and negative controls. The IgG antibodies, once bound to antigen, are detected through spectrophotometric analysis wherein the values are directly proportional to the concentration of the analytes in the sample.
