The Home Allergy Test detects your body’s reactions to both allergen extracts and allergen components. That allows for comprehensive precision testing right down to individual proteins in an allergen source.
Allergen extracts have been taken from what is called a whole allergen source. For example, a peanut.
Allergen components are individual proteins in the allergen source. For example, the proteins of the peanut that may cause a reaction.
Some allergen sources and individual components only cause mild symptoms, while others can cause severe allergic reactions.
