This at-home test kit measures your IgE antibody responses to food and respiratory allergens. Unlike IgG tests on the market, IgE tests are much more specific and accurate.

What this test measures

This test measures total immunoglobulin E (IgE), an antibody the immune system produces in response to perceived threats. It also measures 28 of the most common food allergens and 40 of the most common respiratory allergens.

Who should get tested

Allergies are the sixth-leading cause of chronic illness in America. These symptoms are strong indications that you should get tested:

  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Periodic or persistent itching, hives
  • Congestion
  • Persistent diarrhea with anaphylaxis
  • Difficulty breathing with anaphylaxis
  • Nausea or vomiting with anaphylaxis

Collection method - Finger prick sample

Our kits require just a few drops of blood from the fingertip, a clinically-validated method that is just as accurate (and typically less painful) than conventional blood collection. Afraid of needles? The needle on our lancet stays hidden until collection is complete.

Frequently
asked questions

Allergy testing: when should you get one?

Testing is a good starting point if you are bothered by allergy symptoms and looking for the root cause or need guidance for managing recurring symptoms. Allergy symptoms may include congestion, hives, itchy eyes and more.

How Does Food Allergy Testing Work?

Once you have ordered the Food & Respiratory Allergy Test, the test package will arrive in the mail within a few days. You’ll receive instructions on how to collect a blood sample (we only need a few drops!) and mail it back. Our lab will conduct an IgE blood test to see if your body produces IgE antibodies in response to common food allergy triggers (and environmental allergens). If IgE antibodies are detected, it is considered positive for an allergy to that specific product. You will receive a detailed and easy-to-understand results report.

Who can order an imaware test?

This test is only for adults aged 18 and older. Unfortunately, this test is not available in the state of New York due to state regulations.

If I find out I have allergy triggers, how do I deal with them?

If you have elevated IgE levels for any indoor, outdoor, or food allergies, a board-certified allergist can work with you to create a program that helps to alleviate symptoms. This can include the use of antihistamine and other medications, allergen avoidance and immunotherapy.

Is a food allergy the same as a food sensitivity?

No. A food allergy (measured by IgE) is not the same as a sensitivity to food, which is typically found through an extensive elimination diet while working with a dietitian. A food allergy is more serious and can have much more severe consequences if left unchecked, while a food sensitivity would not involve an immune response. Read our guide to food allergy vs food intolerance.

I took a food sensitivity test, is this the same thing?

No. There is no true, science-based test for food sensitivities. The food sensitivity tests on the market are not recommended by allergists, as they can actually show a tolerance to food which is the opposite of what you’re trying to test for! For an elimination-based approach to food sensitivities, you must test negative for celiac disease or an IgE wheat allergy. We offer a celiac disease screening test and an IgE allergies test that also tests for the top 8 food allergens.

How should I prepare for this test?

Unlike skin prick tests (also called puncture or scratch tests), you do not need to avoid antihistamines or allergy medication for an IgE blood test. Make sure you are well-hydrated before taking the test so you can provide a sufficient sample. Please also return your sample via delivery carrier on the same day.

What will my results tell me?

Your results will tell you if you have elevated IgE levels for the 68 individual allergens we test for. However, like all IgE allergy tests, it won’t diagnose you with a specific allergy. However, you can use your results and work with a board-certified allergist on a plan of action. This might include creating a food journal, avoidance of allergens and/or in-office oral challenges to confirm an allergy, prescribing epinephrine autoinjectors or offering immunotherapy. IgE allergies can be dangerous and life-threatening, so we urge you to follow-up with an allergist after taking our test.
