Allergy sensor


The Allergy Sensor Test is internationally the most-recognized tool for the diagnosis of allergenic components in the body.


From one drop of blood, we are able to determine up to 117 allergens that may cause health problems during the life cycle. Its advantage consists in the accuracy that is secured due the analysis of the DNA contained in blood. That's why the entire testing process is also much better for allergy testing in young children. It is no longer necessary to undergo demanding skin tests, which leave rashes on the skin and moreover are not always entirely accurate.

Detecting the specific antibodies in the blood helps to identify the sensitivity even before the development of an allergic reaction. The allergy sensor provides a new method that can, thanks to innovative technology, identify specific antibodies directed against a large number of substances that cause allergies. This test is fast, reliable and executes an unambiguous analytical step.


The Allergy Sensor Test primarily includes the following allergens:


  • Plants: the pollens of grasses, herbs, trees and sunflowers
  • Animals: dogs, cats
  • Insects: bees, mites, cockroaches
  • Latex: rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis)
  • Food: eggs, cow's milk, carrots, celery, peaches, kiwi, apples, wheat, shrimp, hazelnuts and cashews

Do you know where this hypersensitivity comes from?


Allergies occur when the immune system answers with hypersensitive reactions to normally harmless substances: the body qualifies these substances as foreign, also as an allergen. The immune system produces antibodies against the corresponding allergen already at the first contact with the allergen source (= hypersensitivity) which can cause an acute immune response (= symptom) at any other contact. Therefore, the sooner we take preventive measures in order to prevent and reduce allergic reactions, the sooner the unhealthy development of allergies will be stopped.


What information does the test provide?
 


The Allergy Sensor Test assesses an individual profile of hypersensitivity and thereafter enables a drawing of conclusions about possible cross-reactions and multiple hypersensitivities.

Example:  patients who react to birch pollen often don't tolerate foods containing similar components such as apples, carrots, celery. The basic cross-sensitivity between the related components from different sources can be ascertained by the Allergy Sensor Test in a single step.


How do you know that you have an allergic reaction to a specific substance?


The pathological hypersensitivity of your immune system may be responsible for the following symptoms:

  • Runny nose, continuous sneezing, itchy or watery eyes
  • Cough, shortness of breath
  • Skin rashes, swelling
  • Diseases of the digestive system and diarrhea

What are the advantages of the Allergy Sensor compared to other tests?


To perform the test, you only need a few drops of blood from a finger. The procedure is generally painless and gentle. While other test methods use very complex extracts (e.g. from animal hair, pollens, mites or latex), the Allergy Sensor Test uses highly-purified natural or produced allergens. Enabling thus a precise identification of the allergies.


Based on the results, the doctor will provide the following:


  • an exact description of allergens responsible for your symptoms in a single step.
  • A determination of your individual allergy profile, which will serve as a basis for selecting the most appropriate therapy, e.g. drugs or anti-allergy vaccine (= specific immunotherapy).
  • Recommendations for preventive measures to avoid or to mitigate allergic symptoms (avoiding any contact with the allergen).
