From the expert

This allergy screen provides an analysis of eight commonly eaten shellfish  which can cause IgE mediated allergies.  This is an ideal test to be used as an initial investigation screen for people with signs of IgE mediated allergy such as hives, redness of the skin, vomiting and lip or facial swelling which develops quickly after being exposed to an allergen.

The shellfish tested are:
Clams
Crab
Crayfish
Octopus
Lobster
Prawn
Scallops
Squid

This test also checks levels of total immunoglobulin E, which are often increased in people with an IgE mediated allergy.
