Allergy

Allergy, asthma and autoimmune diseases are increasing around the world, especially in industrialised countries, and affect all ages. We offer allergy profiles, which group the most common tests, as well as tests for individual allergens and allergen components.

 

Allergy test library

Our allergy profiles, individual allergen tests, and allergen component tests.

Allergy profiles

Our allergy profiles group common allergen tests. They include profiles based on geography, food types, inhalants, antibiotics, eczema, gluten and rhinitis.

Individual allergen tests

We offer tests for more than 600 individual allergens, measuring specific lgE antibody blood levels.

Allergy component testing

A more precise and detailed picture of a patient’s sensitisation pattern can be obtained by measuring IgE to potentially allergenic components of an allergen.

Cross reactivity

Individuals who react to specific allergens to foods, inhalants or substances can develop an allergy to others.

Pollen calendar

An overview of when potentially allergenic plants are in flower.
