Laboratory Tests for Allergy (download pdf Booklet)

Dear Doctors, we ask that you specifically nominate which allergens you would like tested. Please do not write the allergens to be tested in the clinical notes section of the request form. A comprehensive menu of allergens that we stock and test for is available (click the title above to download). If allergens are not available we may use cross-reactive ones or advise you on the report. Some "allergy symptoms" may result from intolerance mechanisms (salicylates, amines, MSG, metabisulphite) and detection of IgE to them is not useful or possible. You can request the allergens using their alphanumeric codes. To assist staff performing data entry, we appreciate it if you precede these codes by "Specific IgE for" or "Allergy serology for" or "RAST for".

 

If you simply write "RAST" we will test as follows:

  1. Child 6 years or less: dust mite, egg white, cow's milk, peanut and soy (Panel A1)
  2. Adult or child over 6 years: dust mite, cat, dog, grass pollen and alternaria (Panel A2)

 

If you write "food and inhalant allergens", we will test a staple food mix (Fx5, that includes egg white, cow's milk, peanut, soy, wheat and codfish), dust mite, fescue grass pollen-which cross-reacts with almost all other grasses and, alternaria-an outdoor mould with small spores that can easily be inhaled into the small airways (Panel A16). We do recommend some extended panels of individual allergens and can specifically design panels for you and your patients.
