The Food Detective is a point-of-care food intolerance test which uses ELISA technology to detect the presence of IgG antibodies to 59 common foods. There is no need to send your sample off to a lab as the test can be carried out in clinic, giving results within 40 minutes. The test will show results, as blue spots if positive and includes a control to identify whether or not the test has been performed correctly. The FoodPrint is the name of our comprehensive laboratory service and requires samples to be sent off to the lab, where they are analysed and results returned within 10 working days. The technology is more advanced than that employed by the Food Detective, as it uses microarray technology which enables a more sensitive test to be performed. Due to this, a greater number of foods can be tested and we offer a choice of 7 panels. FoodPrint 40, 60, 120, 200, vegetarian, vegan, herbs and spices, as well as an Indicator test. The Indicator test provides a positive or negative response and will require an upgrade to a larger test if the result comes back positive, in order to identify which foods are causing the problem.
