ALEX® Allergy Explorer Testing

The Smart Way To Explore Allergy

Utilising World Renowned Macro Array Diagnostic Technology For Gold Standard Allergy Testing


 

Who are Macro Array Diagnostics?

Macro Array Diagnostics are a Vienna-based MedTech company.  They develop, produce and distribute tests, instruments and software for allergy diagnostics and research applications.  Their products allow flexible, reliable and affordable sensitisation profiling of each patient.

 

What is the difference between standard allergy testing and ALEX® Allergy Explorer testing?

ALEX® Allergy Explorer is the first test in the world that can rapidly and reliably test for up to 300 allergens simultaneously. One blood sample is all that is needed to carry out a comprehensive analysis, making it a valuable diagnostic tool for the assessment of complex cases.

ALEX® Allergy Explorer uses a multi-parameter allergy diagnostic method covering almost all globally relevant allergens in a single laboratory test.  Molecular allergology (MA) is being increasingly used in clinical settings worldwide, providing enhanced diagnostic depth in addition to conventionally extract-based specific IgE (sIgE) testing.

 

What does the ALEX® Allergy Explorer test for?

The ALEX® Allergy Explorer has a test panel of almost 300 allergens.  These include more than 150 allergen extracts and more than 100 molecular allergens –  pollen, mold (including Malassezia sympodialis), fungus associated with atopic dermatitis and other skin diseases, mites, pets, insects and a range of foods.  The full range of allergens tested for can be found here.

Supplemented with total IgE, ALEX® can cover over 99% of the need for routine allergy diagnosis.  This ground breaking testing method gives allergy patients comprehensive information about the status of their condition, and allows their health professional to better define their individual IgE profile and, in certain cases, improve the identification of their therapeutic strategy, particularly in food allergies.

 

How do I organise ALEX® Allergy Explorer testing through The Men’s Health Clinic?

Appointments can be made by calling us on 01202 091593.  It will take no longer than 15 minutes to have your blood drawn and no fasting is required.  Alternatively, we can arrange for a mobile phlebotomist to draw your sample in the comfort and convenience of your own home or place of work.  An additional fee of £40/55 (dependent on location) will apply for this service.

You will receive your comprehensive test results by email within two weeks.
