Scientific innovation & research
At Lifelab Testing, we work in partnership with our allergen suppliers who are some of the leading innovators in the scientific community that specialise in allergy and intolerance testing.
The expertise shared by DST with our inhouse team allows us to be a market leader of IgE and IgG4 antibody testing helping people understand more about their body and how it reacts to specific foods and items.
- Approximately 1-2% of adults in the UK have a food allergy and 5-8% of children (Pawankar R et al., 2013)
- About 1% of people in the UK have coeliac disease (Food Standards Agency, 2016)
- More than 150 million Europeans suffer from chronic allergic diseases and the current prediction is that by 2025 half of the entire EU population will be affected (EAACI, 2016)
We test for allergy and intolerance reactions using an scientifically approved in-vitro testing system (ELISA). Your blood sample is exposed to a panel of items to which the reactions are recorded and interpreted into levels and a comprehensive report is generated.
