First At-home Allergy Test Identifies 10 Key Allergy Triggers In One Convenient Kit

FOSTER CITY, Calif., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), more than 60 million Americans suffer from allergies.  However, most people don't get tested for allergies, so they often do not know for certain what causes their allergies. Irrespective of the cause, medical experts agree that determining what triggers those allergies is a key first step in their management.  Enter MyAllergyTest ®(, the first FDA-cleared at-home test that allows allergy sufferers to test themselves against 10 key allergens, ranging from food and environmental, to inhalants and animal.

The MyAllergyTest package comes with everything required to allow an individual to collect a small blood sample (just a few drops) from a quick finger prick.  The kit also comes with a postage-paid and pre-addressed envelope for mailing the blood sample to ImmuneTech lab for testing. Within just days of receiving the sample, the lab tests the blood sample and makes the confidential test results available to the individual via the secure MyAllergyTest website or U.S. mail. The results also include a personalized allergy management plan – MyAllergyPlan – based on the individual's test results.

"MyAllergyTest is the first lab-based quantitative IgE test and allergy diagnostic of its kind to use just a few drops of blood to test for 10 separate allergens," explains Lisa Elkins, CEO of ImmuneTech, Inc., which developed and now manufactures and distributes MyAllergyTest. "The lab test results first provide the cause of the allergy or allergies*, while the personalized MyAllergyPlan report provides the guidance to help manage those allergies."

MyAllergyTest is clinically proven to be as accurate as those used by physician offices and diagnostic laboratories.  

Once people can accurately determine what triggers allergies for them, they can deal with them in a more effective way, either through prevention or treatment. The customized MyAllergyPlan provides links to useful allergy management products, access to the MyAllergyTest blog for helpful hints, and a physician finder to locate an allergist in the person's area for additional follow up or allergy care.
