After the test

After your specimen is taken, it takes a few business days to process and report it, although processing time varies for individual tests. You will receive your results with a relevant reporting. In case of results that are outside the expected ranges, please consult you PCP or Health care coordinator. Please note that the presence of antibodies doesn’t confirm a certain allergy, neither can it predict the immune response of your body. The results should always be correlated with the history and clinical picture of the patient and interpreted by your PCP or an allergist.
