Allergy Testing (IgE) Upgrades to Third Generation Methodology
  Third generation IgE allergy testing is done at PathLab using DPC's new 3gAllergy™ method on the Immulite 2000. The 3gAllergy™ method is the first FDA-cleared third-generation allergy test. It is a quantitative test, that has a sensitivity of 0.1 kU/L.

PathLab has created four profiles of allergens appropriate for this area. We offer the South China, Environmental, Food and Pediatric profiles.

Discuss these tests with your doctor, who can order a profile, or individual allergens.

This page lists our profiles and their individual allergens
