How it Works
One you paid the fee, you will receive an email with further details and a blood testing kit will be sent out in the post to you.
Add tests you require into the basket (Screening allergy test ISAC 112 allergenic components or individual tests).
Proceed to checkout and enter patient’s details. Payment is required by credit/debit card at the end of this process
A sample collection kit will be sent out to you with full instructions. The kit can be either used for self collection from a finger prick or the form can be taken to our nurse in the laboratory for a sample from the vein (no appointment is needed walk in Mon-Fri 7am-7pm and Sat 7am-1pm)
This is analysed and your results will be with you within 2 weeks
The sample collection is easy via a simple finger prick method – see video instructions.
Why the ISAC test is the best
The ImmunoCAP® ISAC test provides a large amount of allergen specific IgE antibody information – the big picture – in a single step. This enables patient investigations that require less time and resources. As a result, effective and optimized management can be started earlier, which in turn leads to improved patient health and quality of life.
The ISAC test is a blood test that uses microchip technology to detect specific IgE antibodies to food and airborne allergens (this test uses method called ELISA with a special reader; it replaced the test previously called RAST). It allows simultaneous measurement of specific antibodies to multiple allergen components in a single test, using only a few µl of serum or plasma. The allergens are pre-selected and include the most relevant specie specific and cross-reactive markers.
A combination of innovative biochip technology with cutting edge research in molecular allergology has resulted in ImmunoCAP® ISAC – the most advanced in vitro diagnostic test for simultaneous measurement of specific IgE antibodies to a broad spectrum of allergen components.
The finger prick test is not suitable for children under 6. (This needs to be done by a healthcare professional).
It takes just under 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire. Once you have paid the £393 fee via our secure Worldpay system, your testing kit will be sent out with full instructions. (For children 5 and under, blood needs to be collected by a medical professional. If you are not comfortable providing your own sample, please seek the assistance of a medical professional).
Wonderful! No one else in 20 years has ever found what I am allergic to. Thank you.
Dr Rudenko is a world renowned allergy and Immunology specialist who provides outstanding advice and guidance for parents going through heart ache resulting from multiple food allergies. His calm and educational approach has left us close to tears after finally having answers to so many questions. My son has dozens of food and environmental sensitivities, intolerances and a number of life threatening food allergies. He also has numerous environmental issues which seemed near impossible to pinpoint. In my opinion the London Allergy Clinic is an exceptional centre of excellence.
