The ImuPro test is conducted using the ELISA test method. This is a long used standard procedure in laboratory analysis.
Your serum sample will be analysed in ImuPro’s German laboratories to determine the presence of specific IgG antibodies to a wide variety of individual foods. These IgG antibodies are detected due to their ability to bind to specific proteins in up to 270 analysed foods. Based on the results of the antibody titre, these foods are then categorised into three groups: “not elevated”, “elevated” and “highly elevated”.
The specific IgG concentrations determined by the ImuPro test do not necessarily reflect the occurrence or the severity of serious clinical symptoms. They offer the basis for you to begin your elimination and provocation diet. ImuPro will guide you through this process with three phases, explained in your results: the elimination phase, the provocation phase, and the stabilisation phase.
With some scepticism surrounding the significance of allergy and intolerance testing, it’s important to state that the ImuPro tests are neither testing for IgG4 nor are they addressing type 1 allergy. IgG4 does not induce an inflammatory reaction and are not applicable to the ImuPro Test Method.
