Food intolerance test from home
All our tests including the Food Intolerance test are performed at home, and then sent to our lab for analysis. You will receive your answer digitally.
If you take our Food Intolerance Test, it is important that you have been exposed to the tested items that are included within the last three months. If a longer time has elapsed, there is a risk that it will not have a possible effect on your test result.
Food intolerance 40 items (IgG4) measures the following foods:
- Green Peas
- Green beans
- Egg white
- Goat milk
- Sheep’s milk
Before taking the test
We recommend that you have been exposed to the foods included in the test within the last three months, before taking the test. If more than three months has passed without having ingested those foods, the chance is that it might show a lesser sensitivity on the result.
The food intolerance test is performed via a method called ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), which is an analytical technique designed to detect and quantify soluble substances such as peptides, proteins, antibodies and hormones. In this method, the antigen itself (the target macromolecule) is immobilized on a solid surface (microplate) and then complexed with an antibody that is linked to a reporter enzyme. Detection is accomplished by measuring the activity of the reporter enzyme via incubation with a suitable substrate to produce a measurable product. The most crucial element of an ELISA is a very specific antibody-antigen interaction.
