Food and Pet Sensitivity Test
Only €129 with results in 6 weeks
Do you suffer from stomach pain, diarrhoea, and bloating after eating? These problems may be caused by intolerance or sensitivity to food or a certain substance.
The Food and Pet Sensitivity Test determines if you are sensitive to many common food items. The list includes lactose, eggs, peanuts, gluten, yeast, soy, fish, shellfish, corn, and more.
Food sensitivity happens when your body reacts to food digested. Unlike allergies, the symptoms of food sensitivity or intolerance do not happen immediately.
The service includes a Pet Dander Test, which analyses your sensitivity to pet dander (fur, hair, or feathers) using your genetic markers.
It also tests for Histamine and will study your genetic markers to confirm if you have the ability to break down excess histamine, a compound common in fermented foods like wine.
The DNA testing service analyses 30 genetic markers (SNPs) to determine your genetic predisposition to the specific food and substances tested for. Food items covered by the test are categorised into the following:
- Cow Milk Protein
- Pet Dander
- Other Foods: Tree nuts, soy, soybean, corn, yeast, fish, shrimp, apples
How to Test for Intolerance and Sensitivity
Requiring only your oral swabs, the Food and Pet Sensitivity Test is simple, quick, and painless.
As soon as you place your order, we will send a DNA testing kit to your provided address. This kit includes everything you need to collect your oral swab samples.
The kit also contains a set of instructions, but basically, here’s everything you need to do:
- Take the swabs from the envelope.
- Rub the swabs against your inner cheek.
- Allow the swabs to air dry.
- Place them back in the envelopes.
- Send them to us using the pre-printed return envelope.
The Results of the Test
The results of the Food and Pet Sensitivity Test include a comprehensive report, which identifies the allergens that you are sensitive to. You will also receive a guide with dietary suggestions and recommended food substitutions and supplements.
An inconclusive result means that the laboratory cannot determine whether you have a sensitivity or not. This happens because the laboratory could not detect the necessary alleles or genes.
Results will be available 6 weeks after our laboratory confirms receipt of your samples.

The Limitations of the Test
Please take note that the Food and Pet Sensitivity Test only analyses your biological reactions to food and pet substances. It also assesses your genetic predisposition to develop sensitivity to specific allergens.
However, it does not analyse any other information related to other diseases and medical conditions. Please visit your physician for medical advice before making any drastic changes in your diet and lifestyle.
