Genomia uses allergy tests by Alegrovet company. Alergovet

S.A.T ELISA®: It is a test of screening that tells us if the animal presents antibodies IgE or IgG set against environmental or food allergens, and therefore could be considered allergic, but it does not specify to which allergens. This test results of utility as a first step in the diagnosis and guides us on the road to go on from that moment.

P.E.T ELISA®: It can be for environmental allergens, food allergens or both. This test details exactly the allergens that are causing the problems in the animal and it gives us clearly the direction forward to an effective treatment. It's used is essential to manufacture a specific immunotherapy for this animal, or to give us the direction to establish an elimination diet. Alergovet recommends to do the two types of panels (environmental and food) since the two types of allergy come together in a high percentage of the cases.

For our tests, we require a serum sample – the required sample volume is 5 ml. It is not necessary to stop the symptomatic treatment (corticosteroids, antihistamines, etc.).

For sample storing and sending no special conditions are required. Do not freeze the sample. Store it in the refrigerator until ready to package and send out.

Wrap the serum sample in a napkin and put it in an air-cushion envelope. Do not delay sending the sample. Cooling of the sending is not required.

Send the sample per normal mail to the address of the laboratory: Genomia, Janáčkova 51, 32300 Plzeň.
