Based on its own established quantitative enzyme immunoassay (ELISA), Immunolab provides Food Intolerance testing services. The test is based on microtiter technology and is a sensitive and reliable method to simultaneously measure specific antibodies against many different food antigens.
The medical clinical society is not yet totally decided whether IgG or IgG4 is the method of choice for detecting food intolerances. To serve both purposes, Immunolab offers either total IgG or IgG4 testing services. This Food Intolerance is also called as Food Allergy Type III.
immunoSERVICE Basic: Is suitable to check in advance whether there are increased specific IgG/IgG4 antibody levels to basic common foods. It tests for 24 foods.
immunoSERVICE Advanced: Includes all foods of the immunoSERVICE Basic panel and offers patients an overview regarding possible specific IgG/IgG4 antibodies to common foods. It tests for 88 foods.
immunoSERVICE Expert: Includes all foods of the immunoSERVICE Advanced. In order to have sufficient foods available in the elimination phase against which no elevated IgG/IgG4 levels were measured and to ensure a balanced diet, we propose to consider the immunoSERVICE Expert which tests for 176 foods. immunoSERVICE Expert offers a comprehensive solution to identify the actual symptom-triggering foods.
immunoSERVICE Expert+: Includes all foods of the immunoSERVICE Expert and tests for additional 88 foods. We propose to consider the immunoSERVICE Expert+ which tests for 264 foods in total and offers a complete solution including for example Agar, Alfalfa, Allspice, Curd, Hare, Hop and Okra

The results of the specific antibodies tested for are reported in (U/ml) and are also displayed as reaction classes for better visual realization. The higher the class, the more antibodies are detected and the higher is the possibility of clinical symptoms due to the specific foodstuff.
Based on the results of the described ELISA tests above, the health practitioner can define an appropriate exclusion or rotation diet.
For measuring the success of such a diet, the food intolerance test should be repeated after several weeks. The measured values can be compared with the initial results. This is a service report example:
A personalized food rotation plan could be offered at an extra charge.
