Millions of people suffer from allergies every year in the United States. Premier Lab Solutions offers a way to identify potential allergens through the use of the most sensitive and comprehensive allergy testing technology available. Both adults and children can be tested through blood samples, and common allergic reaction triggers can be identified, particularly when combined with a detailed medical history.
An allergy is when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, called an allergen. It could be something you eat, inhale into your lungs, inject into your body or touch. This reaction could cause coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, a runny nose and a scratchy throat. In severe cases, it can cause rashes, hives, low blood pressure, breathing trouble, asthma attacks and even death. Premier Lab Solutions offers allergy testing for drug allergies, food allergies, Insect allergies, latex allergies, mold allergies, pet allergies, and pollen allergies.
For example, food allergies and food sensitivities are abnormal responses to a food component triggered by the immune system in the form of immunoglobulins (IgE, IgG, IgA, IgM), representing either an immediate or delayed response.
Specific IgE food panels include the major food allergens known to be responsible for immediate type reactions and are grouped for adult, basic or comprehensive panels. Individual specific IgE foods can be ordered from the lab’s inventory of over 100 different foods as needed.
We are one of the only labs that has all of the major allergy testing methodologies available. This enables us to offer testing for nearly 1,000 allergens, as well as most types of clinical blood work.
