Fruit IgE Test - More Information
The fruit allergy test panel, also known as a fruit IgE lab test, measures the IgE antibody blood levels for seven different types of fruits. This fruit allergy IgE panel includes the apple allergy test, banana allergy test, grape allergy test, grapefruit allergy test, peach allergy test, pineapple allergy test and the strawberry allergy test.
This fruit allergy test panel uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Fruit 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 fruit.
This fruit 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 fruit components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to the specific fruit, 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 fruit allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
