Precision Airborne Allergy (Serum)

Precision Point Diagnostics’ Airborne Allergy Test measures the body’s immunoglobulin E (IgE) response to 85 common airborne allergens including pet dander, mold, dust mites, grasses, crops, trees, and weeds. Around the world, allergic rhinitis affects between 10 – 30% of the population. This serum test can be used in addition to, or as an alternative to, traditional skin prick tests. It is helpful for developing a treatment plan for seasonal allergies, a significant reason for patient office visits. Furthermore, the Airborne Allergy Test detects IgE allergies to mold, pet dander, dust mites, and other allergens found in the contaminated air and surfaces in indoor home environments. Indoor and outdoor allergens can cause congestion, runny nose, red, itchy eyes, sneezing, headaches, dermatitis, and fatigue. They can even be an underrecognized cause of gastrointestinal symptoms.1

Airborne Allergy Symptoms

  • Allergic rhinitis (hay fever)
  • Asthma
  • Congestion
  • Dermatitis
  • Fatigue
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Headaches
  • Red, itchy eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sinusitis
  • Sneezing

The Airborne Allergy Test is far more comprehensive than other inhalant allergy tests, reporting immune responses to 85 allergens. It offers a way to detect IgE reactions in sensitive or fragile patients without an uncomfortable skin prick test. Precision Point’s Airborne Allergy Test also features an expanded mold panel, measuring 18 different mold organisms such as Aspergillus fumigatus, Cladosporium cladosporioides, Fusarium roseum, and Penicillium. Now you and your patients don’t have to guess what allergens are triggering their ear, nose, and throat symptoms.

Precision Point Diagnostics’ reliable and reproducible results can be used to remove allergens, plan for seasonal allergies, guide immunotherapy, or choose treatments to modulate the immune response. With this information, you can help your patients reduce exposures to allergens in their living and working environments. For example, patients who test positive for one or more mold allergies can remediate their homes or work spaces to remove moisture and mold, which has been shown to improve allergic rhinitis, allergic sinusitis, and bronchial asthma.2 For patients with chronic sinus, respiratory, or skin symptoms, airborne allergy testing can help you address their immune triggers and imbalances, so they can get back to health and wellness.
