Fish Allergy Blood Test - More Information
The fish allergy test panel, also known as a fish allergy blood test and a fish IgE test panel, measures the IgE antibody blood levels for four different type of fish. The fish allergy blood tests in this panel are the codfish allergy test, halibut allergy test, salmon allergy test and tuna allergy test.
This fish allergy test panel uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Fish 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 the specific fish.
This fish 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 fish components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to the specific fish, 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 a fish allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
