Allergies to pollen, dust mites, animal dander, and foods can have a negative impact on the well-being of individuals. An allergy is a disorder caused by an exaggerated IgE-mediated immune response to allergens.
Allergy and related diseases are extensive and rapidly growing problems affecting up to 30-40% of the world population and if left untreated can lead to severe diseases such as dermatitis, rhinitis, asthma, conjunctivitis, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms of allergies include difficulty in breathing, rashes, swelling, runny nose and vomiting.
At Remedies our rapid allergy test covers some of the most prevalent allergies.
The test uses a modified Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay that detects specific IgE antibodies. Allergy test is particularly well-suited for patients being treated with antihistamines. The test is straight forward and minimally invasive by means of a simple pin prick to identify the degree of allergen sensitisation. Visible results are available in as little as 15 minutes.
