The YorkTest AllergyCheck tests for reactions to the most common environmental allergens, including:

Your laboratory analysed allergy test results are presented in an easy to understand format, indicating the strength of your reactions on a scale of 0-2. A score of 0 is a negative reaction and 2 is a positive reaction therefore the allergen should be avoided where possible.
