Introduction

UK’s most comprehensive allergy test with close to 300 allergens. Find out everything you need to know about your allergies.

Allergies affect around one in four of the general population. Many allergic patients do not take their allergy seriously and are suffering from subsequent complications, e.g. hay fever, allergic asthma or are subject to unnecessary dietary restrictions.

This home and in-store test allows you to fully understand all your allergies to help you to reduce the impact of allergies on your life.

This test can check for close to 300 relevant allergen sources (except drug allergens, such as penicillin). We have the most comprehensive test in the UK which also tests for molecular allergens, which allows for a comprehensive understanding of allergic cross-reactions and a risk assessment of food allergies (to allow for tailormade dietary recommendations). Likewise, allergen-specific immunotherapy can be directed against the main trigger (available for pollen, house dust mites and insect venoms) of symptoms.

An allergy is not the same as a less serious food intolerance which is difficulty digesting certain foods and having an unpleasant physical reaction to them. Please see our food intolerance test if you are concerned that you may be intolerant to a certain food types (coming soon).

Whether pollen, mites, furry animals, insect venoms, moulds and yeasts, food or latex this test will allow you and your family to fully explore and understand all your allergies.

How does this test work?

There is no better way to check for underlying health problems, or monitor existing conditions, than with a blood test.

Whether you are concerned about your health, managing an existing condition or simply curious, a blood test provides a fast, affordable and easy way to start taking charge of your own health.

We offer in-store testing to make the process as simple, stress free and convenient as possible.

You will receive your results on the day after we receive your sample in our laboratory. We run a 24/7 laboratory operation and test all samples as quickly as possible after receiving them which enables our team of in-house GPs to review and communicate your results in the fastest possible timeframe.

*It is important to note that blood tests alone are not a substitute for seeing a doctor, particularly if you have any symptoms. You should not make a diagnosis or start any treatment without a consultation with a doctor or suitably trained healthcare professional.
