Allergy Panels – IgABlood Spot (finger prick)

 

Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is an antibody that plays a critical role in mucosal immunity. More IgA is produced in mucosal linings than all other types of antibody combined; between three and five grams are secreted into the intestinal lumen each day. This accumulates up to 15% of the total immunoglobulin produced in the entire body.

 

 

 

Available IgA Panels:

  • 96 General (Western) Foods

  • 16 Inhalants

gA antibodies are found in areas of the body such the nose, breathing passages, digestive tract, earseyes, and vagina. IgA antibodies protect body surfaces that are exposed to outside foreign substances. This type of antibody is also found in saliva, tears and blood. About 10% to 15% of the antibodies present in the body are IgA antibodies. A small number of people do not make IgA antibodies.

 

 

It is recommended that IgA allergy testing is only performed for infants greater than 18 months of age.
