Grasses, Herbs, Trees, and Weeds
Watery eyes and itchy throat as the seasons change? Discover what is triggering your allergic reactions.
IgE Outside Panel
Our IgE Outside Panel analyzes allergic reactions to common outdoor environmental allergens.
1 in 5 Americans are diagnosed with environmental allergies and more than 50% of Americans say allergies impact their daily quality of life. This panel evaluates your blood serum for IgE reactions triggered by everyday environmental allergens from grasses, herbs, trees, and weeds.
Is this test for me?
The IgE Outside environmental allergy panel is for people to understand what pollens and outdoor allergens are triggering allergic reactions. We analyze 11 grass allergens, 2 herb allergens, 21 tree allergens, and 11 weed allergens to cover the most common outdoor reactions and beyond. Complete a symptom checklist to help find out if your symptoms may be related to immediate allergies.
- One simple blood draw to evaluate your IgE reactions.
- No scratch test with an allergen and no concern about severe reactions to determine your allergies.
Signs of IgE Allergies
Immediate allergies can trigger several different symptoms. The reaction will commonly occur within a few minutes, though sometimes the response will develop gradually over a few hours. Common allergic symptoms to food:
- Tingling or itching in the mouth
- Hives, itching, or eczema
- Swelling of the lips, face, tongue, and throat or other parts of the body
- Wheezing, nasal congestion, or trouble breathing
- Abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting
- Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting
Laboratory Testing Process
IgE testing must be accurate and precise. Immuno Labs performs IgE panels on the best laboratory equipment available. We conduct our testing using fluorescent enzyme immunoassay (FEIA) that measures the concentration of circulating allergen-specific IgE antibodies in serum. This helps to identify specific allergic reactions and, when coupled with a history of exposure and allergic symptom development, may help identify allergic triggers. The testing process begins with the specific antigen being bound to a three-dimensional hydrophilic cellulose polymer, which can bind significantly more allergen than older disk methods. This substrate allows for increased antigen binding and improved sensitivity. Patient serum is mixed with the antigen-bound substrate, permitting antigen-specific patient IgE to complex. Next, the complexed substrate is mixed with an enzyme–IgE conjugate forming a secondary immune complex. Subsequently, a fluorogenic material is applied to the secondary immune complex, which results in the formation of a fluorescent secondary immune complex. Using a fluorometer, the fluorescence is read, and the quantification correlates with the quantity of patient IgE. Immuno Labs IgE testing demonstrates a very high specificity, high efficiency, and high sensitivity. The testing instrumentation we use has over 4,000 scientific articles, which shows its clinical value and why it is championed as “The Gold Standard” for in vitro IgE testing.
Immuno Labs offers the power of awareness, of knowing. An empowerment that enables you to change the way you feel, the way you think, how you see yourself and the world around you.
Lab results need to give more than insights. Our IgE panels provide allergen-specific recommendations to help you effortlessly take action and live allergy-free.
