Allergen is a fine particle in air which is trigger for allergy in body, or it is the basic cause of trigger of problem, hence it is very important to know that patient is allergic to which allergen (particle). These inhalant particles are of the size of 2-5Micron (10-6 M= 1 micron), and usually are made of protein. Once we know allergen either we can AVOID if it is avoidable (viz: Foods) or if it is a air particle (Viz: Pollen, Mite, Fungal Spore, Insect droppings or Danders) it can not be practically avoidable. In such cases ASIT (Allergy Specific Immuno Therapy or Vaccines) are highly beneficial. These vaccines are made on Allergy Test (SPT) which has its own issues and
SPT: Skin Prick Test : is the oldest method and it can be done on skin with minimal pain.
Pros: Fast, Economical, Gold Standard.
Cons: Painful, Can have false positive results
Blood Allergy Test:
It is either done by RAST / CALRA / ELISA
Pros: High false positive result
Most accurate form is Immunoflorocence (Immunocap)
Pros: Highly sensitive, Highly specific, Recommended by US FDA, Accurate, No Pain, Patient need not to come for test; hence can be done remotely, Gold standard
It is very important to choose allergy panel to reduce cost and time. Brodly it is devoided between: Perineal & Seosanal. History of exposure to animal fur, Carpets, Grain dust help much to choose Serum Allergy Test.
Asthma & Rhinitis Adult Panel:
Molds / Fungie
Asthma & Rhinitis Infant & Children Panel: It includes:
Atopic Dermatitis & Urticaria Panel: It includes:
Pollens like Common Ragweed / Parthonium
Solution to allergic problem is combination of followings or one of them:
2. Pharmacotherapy (Medicines)
3. Anti IgE
4. ASIT (AllergyVaccines) Allergy Specific Immuno Therapy
For Avoidance, ASIT we must know the “Trigger Allergen” means allergen which is responsible for this process of allergy in body. To know this “ALLERGY TEST” is ONLY solution.
By ALLERGY TEST either SPT (Skin Prick Test) or Serum Allergy Test is only way to know it. So getting tested is best way.

The MOST ACCURATE, PROVEN, APROVED and with Highest Specificity and Sensitivity is “Immunocap” method. (“Immunocap is trade mark of Phadia”)
At “bloodallergytest.com” we perform on Immunocap method which is most accreditated and approved by US-FDA.
Once the Allergen (The Trigger) which is causing Allergy is known, the Patient can be totally treated for allergy by giving Allergy shots called “allergy vaccines”, ‘Immunotherapy” or “ALLERGY SPECIFIC IMMUNOTHERAPY” (ASIT).
Facility of Diagnosis and Treating are available at our centre by Qualified Allergist.
Types of Allergy known
- Food Allergy
Allergies caused by food items. Symptoms range from Diarrhoea, Vomiting,Abdominal,Nausea.
