Johnson grass IgE Test - More Information
The Johnson grass allergy test, also known as a Johnson grass allergy blood test and a Johnson grass IgE test, measures the Johnson IgE antibody blood level.
Johnson grass, also known as Sorghum halepense is a type of grass that originates from the Mediterranean. Johnson grass is considered a weed due to the adverse affects it can have when eaten by grazing animals and because of how it can overtake pastures and prevent other plants from growing.
This Johnson grass IgE test uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Johnson grass 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 Johnson grass.
This Johnson grass 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 Johnson grass components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to Johnson grass, 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 Johnson grass allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
