Allergy Animal Panel Confirmatory Test

Allergy Animal Panel Confirmatory Test

The Allergy-Animal-Panel-Confirmatory test involves the in-vitro serum testing for IgE antibodies produced against possible allergens introduced into the blood serum. The traditional method of scraping the skin after the allergens are introduced into the skin for testing is really painful. The allergens usually used for the test include cat epithelium & dander, dog dander, cow dander and horse dander which are from the commonly domesticated animals living close to humans. In the real-time scenario, these allergens cause severe allergic reactions like itching, skin rashes, watery eyes, Allergic rhinitis and severe breathing problems in Asthma patients and in others. Some allergies are non-IgE mediated and hence other test methodologies might be followed to detect such allergies.

Wear a half-sleeved shirt on as full-sleeved shirt might pose difficulty in pulling up the sleeves. Do not wear sweater or jacket. No special preparation is required for this test and you can continue any medication that you are taking by informing your doctor. If your blood sample is needed for other tests then fasting may be required in some cases. Please kindly follow the instructions given by the lab.

The Allergy-Animal-Panel-Confirmatory test is used for detecting allergic reactions of the body when exposed to animal matter or animal allergens.

About 1 ml or just 2 teaspoons of the blood sample will be drawn from your body. This test needs to be conducted in a well-equipped diagnostic lab or medical centre with the Allergy-Animal-Panel-Confirmatory testing facility. The skin on the arm is cleaned with an alcohol pad. In the next step, the needle will be inserted into the body through the vein which is easily visible over the cleaned skin. The blood sample will be collected through the tube attached to the needle which contains the serum gel. The tube is separated from the needle and closed with a lid and with the patient’s name on it. The blood sample tube is shaken down to remove serum from the clot and then it is sent to the research laboratory for examination.
