The term allergy refers to a hypersensitivity of the immune system to foreign substances, which usually are not dangerous (allergens). Your immune system creates antibodies to allergens during the first contact with the allergen sources (allergisation); any further contact can trigger a violent defensive reaction (symptom).
What allergens are tested?
Plants: grass, herbs, pollen from sunflowers
Animals: dogs, cats
Insects: house dust mite, cockroach, honeybee
Molds: Aspergillus, Alternaria, Cladosporium
Foods: cow's milk, hen's eggs, carrot, celery, kiwi, peach, apple, wheat, shrimp, peanut
A few drops of capillary blood are enough for running the test. Sampling this blood is usually a painless process. This type of test provides a precise determination of allergenic individual components, without direct contact with the test substances, as it is the case for skin tests.
