Allergies

Twenty to thirty per cent of the Canadian population is affected by some form of allergy. At Biron, we offer the ImmunoCAP® test, a faster and more accurate technology than the conventional skin allergy test. You can now be tested for more than 600 allergens.

Some 20 to 30 percent of Canadians suffer from some form of allergy and recent research indicates that one in thirteen has a significant food allergy. Early screening and rapid intervention, especially for children, is the best way to prevent eventual complications from an allergy.

Biron provides innovative tests, which are timely and precise, covering over 650 allergens. These help to prevent your allergy from transforming into a chronic disease.

Biron allergy tests - ImmunoCAP™ technology

Biron allergy tests use ImmunoCAP™ technology, which is more accurate than conventional allergy skin tests. It has many benefits:

  • Only a single blood sample is required to analyse for all allergens
  • Precise diagnosis before symptoms appear, which allows detecting the formation of IgE antibodies at an early stage
  • Ability to quantify the degree of the allergy, to track its progress and assess the effectiveness of immunotherapy treatments
  • Performed in vitro, these tests provide stable results that do not vary depending on skin condition, medications taken, technique used or other external factors

If your healthcare professional has prescribed this test or if you have any questions, contact us at 1 800 463-7674.
