Peanut Component Allergy Test


Test Code: 605971
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Peanut Component Allergy Test

This test is used to determine if a person may have an allergic reaction to Peanuts.  Unlike a standard peanut allergy test, a component allergy test looks at a person's reaction to various proteins found in peanuts.  Since some of these proteins can cause a more severe reaction than others, it can be helpful to know which specific proteins a person is allergic to.  This information can help a person to work with their doctor to determine the best way to manage their allergy. This test measures IgE antibodies to the proteins Ara h 1, Ara h 2, Ara h 3, Ara h 6, ARA h 8, and Ara h 9.

For more testing options please see our Allergy Testing Category.

Turnaround for this test is typically 3-5 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
