What is this test?

Cocklebur is native to Europe, Asia, southern Canada, and most of the United States, Mexico and Central America, but is now found worldwide. Anecdotal evidence suggests that asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis are common following exposure to pollen from Cocklebur; however, few specific studies have been reported to date. This bur-producing weed is commonly found in cultivated fields, waste areas, run-down and abandoned pastures, and road ditches. It is poisonous during its two-leafed stage. The burs often become tangled in the fur of grazing animals, thus aiding distribution of the species. Cocklebur seeds and seedlings are toxic to livestock. Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen.

Test Preparation

No special preparation is needed for Allergy Cocklebur Fluorescence Assay Skin. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Allergy Cocklebur Fluorescence Assay Skin. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
