Grape IgE Test - More Information
This grape allergy test, also known as a grape allergy blood test and a grape IgE lab test, measures the grape IgE antibody blood level.
Grapes are juicy fruits that are eaten raw and also used to make juice and wine. A grape allergy can cause red eyes, runny nose and sneezing and can also cause trouble breathing.
This grape 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 grape. The grape allergy test is also part of the larger fruit allergy test panel.
This grape 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 grape components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to grape, 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 grape allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
