Allergy testing products
We develop, manufacture, and distribute innovative blood test systems to aid in the diagnosis and disease management of allergies and autoimmune disorders.
As the world leader in in vitro allergy diagnostics, we supply seven out of ten allergy laboratory tests worldwide. Thermo Scientific™ lmmunoCAP™ lab tests accurately measure specific lgE antibody blood levels, as well as other important allergy risk markers. I mmunoCAP is one of the most important tools for understanding allergy, helping clinicians make sense of symptoms such as rhinitis, eczema, wheezing and asthma.
High-quality raw materials
To develop allergy tests, you have to have the allergens readily available. Over our nearly 40-year history, we have constantly improved our production techniques to ensure a constant supply of pure and stable allergens.
Over the years, ImmunoDiagnostics has acquired a unique competence in the large-scale cultivation of wild flowers, weeds, and other plants, and we now produce the bulk of the pollen-based allergens we use in the 400-acre plantations surrounding our processing plant in Sweden. Our custom-built premises feature separate aseptic and environmentally controlled buildings for different allergen types. Pure raw materials are forwarded to quality control and processing facilities at the test production plant in Uppsala.
For allergens not available in Sweden, we have secured supply from relevant geographical areas. In addition to our wide variety of pollens, we also produce a range of pure allergens from moulds, insect venoms, foods, and animal epithelia.
ImmunoCAP Allergen Components are single proteins purified from their natural source or produced via recombinant techniques.

Learn more about allergy symptoms
A person may experience quite common everyday symptoms that in fact are caused by allergy. Even more serious conditions such as asthma attacks may also have an underlying allergic trigger. Here you can learn about a number of typical symptoms that often are a sign of allergy.
