Practitioners utilise high-powered equipment to examine the plasma (the liquid component of blood) and gather data. From this data, we analyse how it relates to your food allergy and intolerances.
We’ve all heard people talking about having ‘allergies’ or ‘intolerances’ as it’s quite a common thing in the modern age, but the true definition of what they are and the difference between them is confused or misunderstood. In the Lifelab laboratory our analysts use The Allergy Line Test, which is an enzyme immunoassay for in-vitro testing. There are two distinct areas of testing we carry out in our laboratory; IgE, for allergies and IgG4, for intolerances.
