Laboratory testing of allergens
Did You Know?
Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is a class of antibodies produced by the immune system. It plays a significant role in allergies.
The blood of the patient is analyzed for levels of IgE specific to the allergen in question. For example, if you are allergic to peanuts then your blood could be measured for presence of IgE specific to peanut. Presence of IgE specific to peanut would indicate you are allergic to peanuts.
