Mast Cell Mold IgE Panel

The Mast Cell Mold IgE Panel panel contains 5 tests with 9 biomarkers.

The Mast Cell Mold IgE Panel is a comprehensive panel designed to detect specific IgE antibodies in a patient's blood, which are indicative of an allergic response to various molds. This test is crucial for individuals who exhibit symptoms of mold allergy or have a known hypersensitivity to mold spores, as it can guide appropriate avoidance and management strategies. The tests included in this panel are:

  • Allergy Panel 11, Mold Group: This broad test checks for IgE antibodies against a group of common molds, helping to pinpoint the specific mold allergens causing symptoms.

  • Chaetomium globosum (m208) IgE: This test measures the IgE antibodies specific to Chaetomium globosum, a mold commonly found in water-damaged buildings and associated with a range of respiratory issues.

  • PENICILLIUM GLABRUM (P. FREQUENTANS)(M209) IGE: This test is for the detection of IgE antibodies against Penicillium glabrum (also known as P. frequentans), a species of fungus found in various environments that can cause allergic reactions.

  • Penicillium notatum (m1) IgE: Targets the IgE antibodies to Penicillium notatum, the original source of the antibiotic penicillin, which is also a common indoor allergen.

  • Stachybotrys chartarum/atra (RGm24) IgE: This test looks for antibodies against Stachybotrys chartarum, also known as black mold, which is notorious for its association with sick building syndrome and various health problems when inhaled.

Patients undergoing this test will have a small sample of blood drawn, which will then be analyzed in a laboratory for the presence of IgE antibodies to the specific molds listed. The results can help allergists and other healthcare providers develop a treatment plan that may include environmental controls, medications, or immunotherapy to manage the allergic response.
