Codfish IgE Test - More Information
The codfish allergy test, also known as a codfish IgE blood test and a codfish allergy lab test, measures the codfish IgE antibody blood level.
This codfish IgE test uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Codfish 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 codfish. This codfish allergy test is one of the types of fish tested in the fish allergy test panel.
This codfish 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 codfish components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to codfish, 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 the codfish allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
