The Abingdon Health Allergy self-test is a clinically validated, fast and accurate home test kit that allows you to test for the presence of Immunoglobulins E (IgE) which are a class of antibodies associated with allergic reactions, taken from a blood sample. A quantity of IgE that is above the normal levels indicate the presence of an allergy.
The results are easy to read and form a fundamental part of determining whether an allergy is present in the blood or not.
This self-test is designed to provide quick results without the need for a health care professional in the preliminary stages of detecting concentrated levels of the IgE antibody responsible for allergic reactions contained within the blood sample.
With increased wait times to seek the advice of a specialised doctor, the Allergy self-test can provide some comfort in quickly identifying an allergy within a blood sample and can help you narrow down the potential cause of the allergy while waiting to be seen by a doctor or other health care professional.
The test works by inserting a few drops of blood together with a diluent onto the test strip to determine whether a higher than normal concentration of the allergy antibody is present in the blood sample. A positive result indicates the presence of an allergy within the blood sample and further investigations will be required via your GP or other medical professional to determine the specific nature of the allergy.
Made in Switzerland using the latest technology, the Abingdon Health Allergy self-test is the smart and efficient way to identify the antibody associated with allergic reactions in the first instance. Results are ready after just 5 minutes.
The test has a sensitivity of 93.42%, a specificity of 91.42% and an overall accuracy of 92.46%.
