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 IgG, IgG4, IgA, and IgE antibody assessment panels can serve as useful tools in the identification of trigger foods in individuals.
We offer a comprehensive 144-Food “Super” panel, as well as specialized 96-food panels to assess IgG, IgG4, and IgA antibody response to allergens commonly found in typical Asian, Japanese, Mexican, or Vegetarian diets. A 19-Food panel is available for IgE-mediated food allergy testing.
Our 96 Vegetarian Food Panel is a quantitative ELISA anaIysis of specific IgG and IgA antibodies to 96 common vegetarian 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.
