Assesses 190 FOODS to total IgG antibodies. Includes a wide range of foods, common in the Western, Asian, and Mediterranean diets. We have added a hemp allergy marker because it is very common now as a food source or as medical CBD.
Antigen-specific IgG antibodies are captured on multiplexed magnetic beads, using xMAP® (Multiple Analyte Profiling) technology. The eco-friendly xMAP® bead-based immunoassay allows for the simultaneous detection of IgG antibodies to all 190 foods in two single test wells, reducing sample volume requirements and reagents while increasing sensitivity and specificity as compared to traditional plate-based ELISA tests. The upgraded immunoassay is cost and time effective, easy to perform and reproducible. We have now fully automated all steps of our testing processes, leading to even better precision.
When should I use
Immunoglobulin G (IgG) food testing is a useful guide for structuring elimination diets for patients with many chronic conditions. Individuals with neurological, gastrointestinal, movement, and behavioural disorders often suffer from IgG food sensitivities. Elimination of IgG-positive foods may improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, autism, AD(H)D, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and epilepsy, according to numerous clinical studies.
