Allergy Testing Melbourne
Our medical clinic provides expert evaluation and best practice allergy testing performed by doctors who are hospital based Specialist Allergists & Immunologists.
Allergy Testing Melbourne: Specific tests may be needed to determine substances causing an allergy. Avid Allergy provides allergy skin testing and blood tests. Skin testing is one of the most convenient and accurate methods of allergy testing. We use commercial allergen extracts and fresh food skin prick testing. The results are available within 20 minutes and your doctor will discuss the significance of the results during the clinic appointment.
Blood tests to detect Specific IgE "allergy antibodies" are performed when skin testing cannot be performed using industry standard ImmunoCap (RAST) testing. All our testing is recognised by Medicare for rebates.
