The term allergy refers to a hypersensitivity of the immune system to foreign substances, which usually are not dangerous (allergens). Your immune system creates antibodies to allergens during the first contact with the allergen sources (allergisation); any further contact can trigger a violent defensive reaction (symptom).
It is important to take the necessary actions to prevent and reduce the allergic reactions as early as possible, by this ensuring a more favorable course of the disease. The development of an allergy can occur in any stage of the life, when the immune system mistakenly classifies a substance as dangerous and initiates an atypical reaction against it.
Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include a running nose, watery itchy eyes, permanent cold, shortness of breath, cough, rash, swelling, nausea, gastrointestinal discomfort or diarrhea. Through the detection of specific IgE antibodies in the blood, allergisation can be detected before the allergic reaction is triggered. The Allergy Sensor offers a new test method that can reliably identify specific IgE antibodies against a large number (more than 100) of allergy-causing substances.
It examines, among other, the allergen components:
- Plants: grass, herbs, pollen from sunflowers
- Animals: dogs, cats
- Insects: house dust mite, cockroach, honeybee
- Molds: Aspergillus, Alternaria, Cladosporium
- Foods: cow's milk, hen's eggs, carrot, celery, kiwi, peach, apple, wheat, shrimp, peanut
A few drops of capillary blood are enough for running the test. Sampling this blood is usually a painless process. This type of test provides a precise determination of allergenic individual components, without direct contact with the test substances, as it is the case for skin tests.
- IgE antibody test to more than 100 allergens
- analysis for allergens which trigger an immediate immune response
- determination of the cross-reactions
- action and treatment recommendations based on your result
- pain-free analysis without the risk of anaphylactic shock
