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