Food allergies and sensitivities are recognized to be correlated with many plaguing health conditions, but with proper identification and elimination of offending foods, many experience relief from their symptoms.
Our 144 Food "Super Panel" is a comprehensive food sensitivity testing option for patients who may have underlying sensitivities to less conspicuous antigens. Assess IgG, IgG4, or IgA antibody reactivity across a broad range of culturally-diverse foods to help identify trigger foods in these individuals.
Our super panel is a quantitative ELISA anaIysis of specific IgG, IgG4, and IgA antibodies to 144 common foods and spices.
Specimens are tested in duplicate on ELISA platform. We follow a diligent process to extract the key component from each analyte to ensure the antibody present in the patients’ serum will bind to it, and validate with positive and negative controls. The IgG and/or IgA antibodies, once bound to antigen, are detected through spectrophotometric analysis wherein the values are directly proportional to the concentration of the analytes in the sample.
Results illustrate reactivity to each antigen, reported in five zones from No Reaction to Extremely High Reaction.
