Skip Navigation LinksAllergy

The prevalence of allergies has been inexorably rising for a number of years to the point that 15-20% of the population now suffers from some form of allergy. Since the discovery of IgE in 1967, testing for these conditions has become more reliable with the development of a broad range of serum-based tests (specific IgE and IgG, constitutionally expressed and induced mediators, cytokines) and cell-based tests for a variety of effector cells (basophils, eosinophils, lymphocytes).

Allergy Tests

Testing

Eurofins Biomnis offers assays for specific IgEs directed against more than 400 different allergens. We also assay specific IgG and IgG 4 to monitor desensitisation protocols (notably for hypersensitivity to hymenopteran venom) and can test cells to measure the production of various mediators such as histamine and leukotrienes.
