Overview

This mold allergy test detects possible allergic responses to various substances in the environment and evaluates for hay fever, asthma, atopic eczema, and respiratory allergy.

This test detects possible allergic responses to various substances in the environment and evaluates for hay fever, asthma, atopic eczema, and respiratory allergy.

This test is done using Thermo Scientific ImmunoCap Mold allergen technology to quantify specific IgE antibodies, essential tools to aid in the diagnosis of allergic conditions. IgE antibodies appear in human serum and plasma as a result of sensitization to a specific allergen. Measurement of circulating IgE antibodies provides an objective assessment of sensitization to an allergen. In general, low IgE antibody levels indicate a low probability of allergic disease, whereas high antibody levels to an allergen show a higher correlation with an allergic disease.

This Mold Test Includes

Alternaria alternata;

Alternaria alternata is one of the most common fungi associated with asthma.


Aspergillus fumigatus;

The fungus Aspergillus fumigatus causes allergic diseases, respiratory illnesses, and bloodstream infections.


Aureobasidium pullulans;

It is a commonly encountered species in wet buildings. It is both a soil and leaf fungus.


Candida albicans;

Candida albicans is a dimorphic fungus that grows both as yeast and filamentous cells and one of the few species of the Candida genus that cause the infection candidiasis in humans.


Cladosporium herbarum;

C. herbarum an important exacerbant of asthma and hay fever.


Epicoccum purpurascens;

Epicoccum is often found in mold-contaminated buildings; it can be found on gypsum boards, floors, carpet and mattress dust, as well as on house plants 


Fusarium proliferatum;

 Fusarium proliferatum may induce symptoms of asthma, allergic rhinitis and/or hypersensitivity pneumonitis in sensitized individuals.


Mucor racemosus;

Allergy to M. racemosus has been also associated with fungal rhinosinusitis, rhinitis and alveolitis. 


Penicillium chrysogenum;

Penicillium chrysogenum, a common indoor mold, is known to have several allergens and can induce allergic responses that can cause asthma.


Phoma betae;

Phoma is common on wet/damp paints, wood, wallpapers, window frames, and caulking, especially in bathrooms. It can cause asthma-like symptoms.


Setomelanomma rostrata;

Setomelanomma rostrata is responsible for many cases of sinusitis and asthma.


Stemphylium herbarum.

Stemphylium-induced rhinitis and asthma have been documented by a nasal and bronchial provocative challenge in skin tests or serologic positive children. Angioedema has been attributed to Stemphylium, as has allergic bronchopulmonary mycosis.
