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