The Allergy Mini Check blood test measures the level of Immunoglobulin E (IgE) in your blood, an antigen which if raised indicates an allergic response.
This blood test measures the total level of IgE in your body which can indicate whether or not you are an allergy sufferer. This blood test is useful for people who are not sure whether some of their general symptoms could actually be due to an allergy. If your level is raised then you may wish to have further allergy blood tests to see whether we can identify specific allergens that affect you.
Whether you have typical allergy symptoms or whether you have ongoing unexplained and vague symptoms, then this is a good way of confirming whether you are an allergy sufferer.
We will send you your Allergy Mini Check finger-prick blood and sample collection kit which contains everything you need to take your blood and sample in the comfort of your own home. If you are unsure about completing a finger-prick blood sample collection you will have the opportunity to select a clinic-based venous blood sample collection or choose to go our London laboratory during the checkout process.
Your Allergy Mini Check includes 1st class postage and packaging for you to send your blood and sample directly to our laboratory for analysis. If you live in an area where you cannot rely on the post or you simply want to ensure that your sample arrives at the laboratory the following day, you may wish to send your blood and sample guaranteed next day delivery for extra reassurance.
