About the Test

The Shellfish Allergy Panel measures your immune responses to allergens, which may indicate a shellfish allergy. Our Shellfish Allergy Panel measures the level of allergen-specific IgE antibodies produced by your immune system in response to shellfish allergens. IgE antibodies are normally found in small amounts in the blood, but higher amounts may cause signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction. This test detects the presence of high IgE levels in the blood for clam, crab, lobster, and shrimp.


This test reports the presence of IgE(s) antibodies to allergens, but the result by itself cannot confirm the presence of an allergy. It’s important to follow up with your healthcare provider or an allergy specialist. They will review your results along with your medical history, signs and symptoms, medications, and any other test results. Only a healthcare provider can diagnose an allergy and prescribe medication, if needed.
