Dietary Antigen Test is an allergy test similar to the skin prick test measuring the reaction a patient has to a particular food protein. Our test analyzes the serum levels of IgE antibodies for 88 different food antigens, as well as IgG4 total, which acts a blocking agent. The serum allergy test has several advantages over a skin prick test, it is much safer for the patient, they are not being directly exposed to those antigens which can potentially cause a severe reaction. The serum test is also more sensitive and therefore more accurate.
Immunoglobulin A (IgA, also referred to as sIgA in its secretory form) is an antibody that plays a crucial role in the immune function of mucous membranes.
