Aspergillus fumigatus IgE Test - More Information
The Aspergillus fumigatus allergy test measures the Aspergillus fumigatus IgE antibody blood level.
Aspergillus fumigatus is a type of fungus found in soil and similar places like compost piles. It produces large amounts of spores which are widely present in our daily environments. While most healthy people can clear out Aspergillus fumigatus spores easily, people with weakened immune systems can develop an infection from Aspergillus fumigatus exposure. Even in healthy people, however, Aspergillus fumigatus can cause allergy symptoms such as itchy and watery eyes and sneezing.
This Aspergillus fumigatus IgE test uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Aspergillus fumigatus IgE antibody blood test results are reported in kU/L and can be compared against the IgE antibody reference range provided by the lab to determine the IgE allergy class to Aspergillus fumigatus.
This Aspergillus fumigatus allergy blood test is less painful and has less side effects than historical allergy testing methods such as the skin prick test (SPT). In the skin prick, or scratch, test, serum containing Aspergillus fumigatus components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to Aspergillus fumigatus, you will, unfortunately, have a mild allergic reaction and all of the symptoms that go with it. Instead, this allergy blood test can check for an Aspergillus fumigatus allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
