How Hair Testing works

We believe we are one of the leading worldwide providers of bio-resonance tests.

About the Hair Tests

Our lab, uses the MARS III (Multiple Analytical Resonance Systems) medical scanners accredited device class 11a according to ISO EN 13485 to perform our non-invasive tests, and we have carried out over 250,000 tests worldwide as of 31st December 2017. Results are delivered within 7 days.

Bio-resonance technology has been around for 50 years and is widely used in practices throughout Europe, Scandinavia, and China.

We’ll carry out the test on your hair sample against 600 food and non-food items. Any item showing a frequency of over 85% is identified as a probable match.

How Allergy Testing works

If you have a clinical history of allergies, then it is recommended that you identify whether or not you have any food allergies or intolerances with our blood testing processes. Here is how you should take a blood sample:

How to take the sample

123

Before you start your test, ensure all the necessary equipment is ready to use. The longer you take to do your test, the least likely you are to get the right amount of blood.

123

Before you take your blood sample, ensure you are hydrated and have been drinking enough water. This will help the blood flow onto the spot card easier.

123

If you have just completed strenuous exercise before you attempt to take your sample, then it will be more difficult to get the right blood flow.

123

You need to have a hot shower before you complete your test, this could help you collect the required amount of blood.

123

We recommend that you complete your test in a warm and humid room.

Allergy testing is important as it stops life-threatening symptoms from presenting themselves. This is because you are able to avoid certain foods thanks to an allergy test, resulting in you being able to alleviate your symptoms.

How we do the testing

In our modern and contemporary laboratory, our staff technicians are dedicated to producing clinically reliable results which help you to understand your food allergy symptoms.

Providing you with the ultimate service of customer care and a health dedicated journey, the Allergy Test is able to identify your allergies and intolerances, as well as its IgE & IgG4 levels to help you live a happier and healthier life.

The allergy test is an immunoassay that determines the levels of antibody reactivity against specific allergens. Our tests are able to determine levels of antibodies against specific allergens. Using a test blotting procedure and a 2-spot blood card, the test is very similar to ELISA (this is what you may see with other providers of similar tests).

Western Blotting procedures are commonly used diagnostic tools, providing analytics to many areas of health care and immunology, as these can help a customer in the diagnosis of medical conditions.

There’s no need for a doctors appointment! You’ll receive the test kit in the post, take your sample and view your results all from home.

How does it test for allergies?

Measuring a specific antibody response, we require several things. A client’s sample, and a panel of specific allergens derived from foods or other triggers (such as pollen or epithelium cells). Additionally, to complete the testing and ensure the process is complete, our lab technicians require conjugate, wash solution and substrate.

All of our customers and clients’ blood samples are naturally unique, but our testing panels are produced in an identical way, meaning they adhere to forms of quality control and compliance. Your blood samples are in safe hands with TMI Testing.

The first stage of the immunoassay will be to apply a quantity of patient sample (dependant on whether its IgE or IgG4 and which panel tested based on purchased product) to the testing panel. If there are any specific antibodies present in the sample, specifically relating to those on the panel, they will bind. Every panel also has three control values that will always react the same way with known values.

Next up, the panel will require to be washed with the wash solution, this is designed to remove all unbound sample from the panel and prevent non-specific binding to the panel, whilst also not being too abrasive to remove bound allergens and antibodies.

Next the specific conjugate is used. A conjugate has been devised to react to either IgG4 or IgE antibodies. So, if there have been any reactions to the allergens on the panel, the conjugate will then bind to the complex of antibody and allergen. If this happens the complex will be marked by the presence of the conjugate binding. This will be left to react for a period of time.

The next step is to use the wash solution again to remove unbound conjugate.

A substrates job is to make this reaction complex visible for analysis. There are many ways to do this. We use a colorimetric method, which means we apply a numeric value to the shade of a colour. When we apply the substrate to the panel, if there has been a reaction between a conjugate and an allergen/antibody complex the position on the testing panel will be visibly coloured. If there has been no reaction the substrate won’t react, and the position will remain clear. The three control areas of the panel will always react in the same manner. These controls correlate to three known values of increasing reactivity.

This is just a basic overview of the blood allergy testing process and the way it works at TMI Testing. However, should you want to know a little bit more about blood spot allergy testing, our team are happy to help with any queries which you may have.
