About Our Bumblebee Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE blood allergy test will determine if you are allergic to Bumble bee (Bombus terrestrus) venom from bee stings.
In comparison with Honey bees, bumble bees are bigger, hairier and more varied in color. They average about 1.5-2 centimeters in length, and are usually black with broad yellow or orange bands. In contrast to that of honey bees, the stinging apparatus in bumble bees has a stronger connection to the abdomen and less pronounced barbs. Therefore, bumble bees can retract their sting from human skin and, unlike honey bees, do not usually die after having stung. However, bumble bees are not aggressive and do not typically sting unless disturbed in the proximity of their nests.
As bumble bees are increasingly used for the pollination of greenhouse plants, the prevalence of this allergy has been increasing and severe anaphylactic reactions to bumble bee stings has occurred.
Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen. HealthLabs.com offers an easier, virtually pain-free blood test to determine the allergen status of substances without the irritation of traditional skin prick tests.
- No painful skin pricks
- No fasting necessary
- Accurate results within 1 to 2 days
