Cat Dander IgE Test - More Information
This cat dander allergy test measures the cat dander IgE antibody blood level.
A cat allergy is a relatively common issue in which one is allergic to allergens produced by a cat. Like many allergens, a cat allergy can cause symptoms like runny nose and itchy eyes to more severe allergies that require immediate medical attention. In many cases, the cat allergy symptoms are caused by cat dander. Cat dander is microscopic and similar to human dandruff. Circulating through the air, cat dander can build up in household furnishings like carpets, pillows and mattresses and cause allergy symptoms in people with a cat dander allergy.
This cat dander IgE test uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. IgE 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 cat dander.
