Meat Allergy Blood Test - More Information
The meat allergy test panel, also known as a meat IgE blood test, measures IgE antibody blood levels for five different types of meats. The meat allergy tests included in this panel are the beef allergy test, chicken allergy test, lamb allergy test, pork allergy test and turkey allergy test.
This meat allergy test panel uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Meat 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 meat.
This meat 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 meat components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to the specific meat, 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 meat allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
