What does IgE and IgG4 mean?

The lab will analyse your small blood sample against 70 of the most common allergies and intolerances using IgE and IgG4 antibodies to give you accurate laboratory results.  A number of studies have shown a link between raised IgE antibodies and allergic reactions. The IgG4 antibody is a marker for food-immune reactions, or food intolerances.

The state-of-the-art laboratory is part of a facility certified according to ISO 9001. Using the latest testing ELISA equipment, which is unrivalled throughout the allergy testing industry, the labs are overseen by an expert and qualified team of technicians with over 10 years of experience.
