Food allergen test results that can change lives.
For laboratorians interested in adding ImmunoCAP to your test portfolio, explore the ImmunoCAP product catalog.
From the most to the least common food allergens, ImmunoCAP tests offer a multitude of testing options. Speak to a product specialist to learn more about our testing options for food allergens.
ImmunoCAP testing also offers cutting-edge allergen component test options, which measure allergic sensitization to specific proteins or carbohydrates found in whole allergens and gives you a deeper understanding of cross-reactivity, severity, and potential tolerance.3
Food allergies can cause a wide variety of symptoms, sometimes making diagnosis difficult.4
It’s as simple as 1… 2... 3…
The laboratory will process the ImmunoCAP test on Phadia Laboratory Systems.
Assess and interpret ImmunoCAP test results to personalize patient management.
Whether you’re a primary care provider or a specialist, interpretation guides for allergen component test results provide clear guidance on how sensitization to different types of food allergen components may influence the patient management plan.
Specific IgE blood test results should be interpreted in conjunction with the patient’s clinical history and physical examination.8-10 ImmunoCAP blood test results will indicate whether the patient is sensitized (i.e., has IgE antibodies) to specific allergens. However, sensitization to specific allergens does not always indicate a clinical allergy, as sensitization does not always result in symptoms.8,11
Trusted across specialties, ImmunoCAP Specific IgE tests are the gold standard in in-vitro allergy diagnostics,7 which can help optimize outcomes for allergy patients.
