An allergy is an immune system response. It is caused when the body mistakes a protein for a harmful substance and creates a defense system (antibodies) to fight it.
Allergic reactions are immediate reactions, and they can be life-threatening in some cases.
An intolerance is a non-immune system response. Symptoms of intolerance usually occur several hours after exposure to a trigger, whereas an allergy can result in an immediate reaction.
Often people need to be exposed to more significant amounts of food types to trigger an intolerance, unlike an allergy. Food intolerance is not life-threatening.

We have IgE ELISA food and non-food allergy testing. IgE antibodies are involved in Type I allergies and can cause rapid type immune reactions, with symptoms occurring within a few minutes up to two hours after eating a specific food.

We have Intolerance (IgG4) ELISA testing because we are investigating delayed symptoms that could be associated with food intolerances.

We provide you with easy-to-use lancets designed to give you a tiny prick on the finger to start the blood flow.
It’s precisely the same as a pinprick and, if administered correctly following our provided instructions and tips, will not hurt.
While we allow children from the age of 2 and above for blood allergy and intolerance testing.
There is evidence that allergies are not fully developed until the age of 7. Please check with a medical professional before purchasing.
There are a few types of medication that may stop your test from being accurate.
Immune suppressant medications can also affect the results of the testing. We advise that you check with our team before testing regarding medications.
Antihistamines have been shown to affect results; we advise stopping antihistamine use for 3-5 days before taking your sample.
However, we would recommend seeking advice from a medical professional before changing any medication.
