ImmunoCAP Phadiatop is a blood test designed to differentiate between atopic and non-atopic patients. Results indicate high or low probability for atopy. A negative result indicates that the symptoms are not caused by common environmental allergens. The skin of the inner forearm is the usual test site for allergy testing using the Skin Prick Test method. One can also take a blood sample for allergy testing and measure Total Immunoglobulin E (IgE) which is the marker antibody for allergy sensitisation. Then there are the Phadiatop inhalant screen, Food Allergy screens and over 450 individual RAST or ImmunoCAP tests available. We can quantify allergy severity with another cellular marker, this is the Eosinophil cell in the blood stream. Eosinophils are also found in the allergy sufferer
