About Our Hamster Epithelium Allergy Test

Note: Fasting is not required for this test.

This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to Hamster Epithelium (skin cells/tissue).

Hamsters are solitary, burrowing, nocturnal rodents, with chunky bodies, usually short tails, soft, thick fur, and large external cheek pouches used for holding food. Hamsters feed on grain and other plant matter and are serious agricultural pests in many parts of their range.

Many individuals believe they are allergic to their pet hamsters, when in fact more commonly they are allergic to the bedding of their hamster's cage. Timothy grass and hay is commonly used as bedding and sometimes as a digestive aid for small house pets like gerbils and rabbits. If you suspect you are allergic to your little pets, consider our Timothy hay allergy test as well!


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

Our quick blood test allows us to use your blood sample to test for allergic reactions externally, rather than causing unnecessary and painful reactions by introducing potential allergens to your system. Tests are administered in approximately 10 minutes or less at any of our 2,000+ nationwide locations. No appointments, no paperwork and no waiting are all part of what makes HealthLabs.com the best option for pain-free and hassle-free allergy testing.
