“The Smart Way To Explore Allergy”
ALEX2 Allergy testing in London uses the newest technology for gold-standard allergy testing.
It is the first test in the world that can reliably test for up to 300 allergens simultaneously and provide a comprehensive analysis, from a very small blood sample. This in vitro multiplex test is a valuable diagnostic tool for the assessment of complex allergy cases.
Typical allergy symptoms: Skin rash • Chronic rhinitis • Vomiting • Itchy & watery eyes • Itchiness • Shortage of breath • Diarrhoea • Coughing
ALEX2 Allergy Explorer uses a multi-parameter allergy diagnostic method covering almost all relevant allergens in a single laboratory test. Whether pollen, mites, furry animals, insect venoms, moulds and yeasts, food or latex – ALEX2 test them all! Molecular allergology is becoming popular in clinical settings worldwide as it can provide enhanced diagnostic depth in addition to specific IgE (sIgE) testing.
ALEX2 is also equipped with many molecular allergens, which allow for a comprehensive understanding of allergic cross-reactions, and risk assessment of food allergies. That allows doctors to offer tailor-made dietary recommendations. Likewise, allergen-specific immunotherapy can be directed against the main trigger of symptoms. Test results also show total IgE, therefore ALEX2 can cover over 99% of the need for routine allergy diagnosis!
This groundbreaking testing method gives Northway Clinic patients comprehensive information about the status of their allergy condition and allows our Private GPs and Paediatricians better define patient’s individual IgE profile and, in many cases, improve their therapeutic strategy, particularly in food allergies. The full list of allergens tested can be found HERE.
