WRITTEN ORDER: To purchase an Alcat Test, a written order is necessary. Choosing a test (plus maybe one or multiple test combinations right for you) is not always easy because of the many options available. Get advice if you are not sure which test is right for you. The Alcat Test includes guidance and also a test results review – but no diagnostic or health statements. We recommend that you read the following disclaimer carefully to understand what the Alcat Test can and cannot do:

+++ Disclaimer +++

The Alcat Test is to be understood as a nutritional concept and health consultation of complementary nutritional therapy and is NOT a diagnostic or healing method. Nutrition alone is NO substitute for careful diagnosis and medical care in the case of illness.

The Alcat Test should therefore be carried out in consultation with a healthcare professional in the case of a pre-existing illness. This practitioner can integrate the Alcat Test into the treatment plan in an integrative and compatible manner. However, a healthy diet according to the Alcat principle can easily be used for prevention.

We emphasize that the Alcat Test does NOT measure parameters of the specific immune system, i.e. no antibody levels are measured and it is not an LTT /lymphocyte transformation test, but cell-mediated food-related hypersensitivities are examined, which are mainly mediated by the innate immune system.

Thus, the Alcat Test does NOT diagnose food allergies (type 1/IgE – allergies have to be avoided!) and NO enzymatically caused intolerances to e.g. lactose, fructose or histamine.

It is possible that the innate immune system may be activated at the same time despite existing classical allergy or intolerance and therefore does not exclude cell-mediated pro-inflammatory reactivity as measured by the Alcat Test.

The Alcat Test is NOT an IgG test – we explicitly distance ourselves from antibody tests of IgG class(es).

To provide you with the best possible advice, our team of professionals is here for you:

a flexible modular system

While the basic tests are designed to promote a varied healthy diet, the advanced tests provide important information that goes beyond this. Chemical additives unfortunately affect each and every one of us. Many choose to take dietary supplements these days. However, there is little discussion of the fact that immune cells can react against individual ingredients (even capsule ingredients!) and you may want to reconsider/optimise your choice.

FAQs

Is fasting required before taking the Alcat Test?

No, fasting is not required before taking the Alcat Test but being well hydrated is recommended.

However, direct consumption of meat or highly fatty foods (e.g. some types of sausage) prior to blood collection is not recommended.

Should the blood sample be shipped immediately?

The whole blood sample is time-sensitive due to the relatively short life-spam of the innate immune cells. Therefore, the sample should be shipped immediately, on the day of blood collection, to avoid all unnecessary delays (weather or longer delivery time due to unexpected circumstances).

If this is not possible (Sunday or holiday), the sample should be shipped the next day. Please note that all tests undergo a pre-analysis to validate the integrity of the immune cell before performing the Alcat Test. Usually the sample can be tested 24 to 72 hours after blood collection. 

Are blood draws possible on FR and SA?

Our regular blood collection days are from Monday to Thursday.

If you would also like to send in blood samples on FRIDAY or plan to pick them up on SATURDAY, please contact us.

One of our courier partners provides special airbills and delivers on Saturdays – and also collects your samples on Saturdays. 

Is there any special handling for the sample?

Blood is collected in the blue top vials provided in the test kit and should be stored at room temperature until shipped. Specimen should not be frozen, spun or refrigerated. Sample should be viable for at least 48 hours.

The laboratory will determine if the cells viability are within specifications for testing.

Do I need to fill each vial to capacity?

Yes, each vial collected must be filled to capacity. The number of vials is clearly indicated on the lab requisition form.

Are there medication restrictions?

It is not necessary to postpone testing despite medication use. If possible do not take any medications 3 to 4 hours prior to blood draw.

Taking medication is part of the patient’s daily life and should therefore also be considered in Alcat testing. 

The situation is different in case of a one-off infection. After a course of antibiotics, the patient should wait 14 days.

Does the Alcat Test also test food allergies type 1?

The Alcat Test is NOT a food allergy test. It is designed to test for sensitivities, which have a delayed reaction. Although in common parlance, the terms have been used interchangeably, food allergy and food sensitivity are quite different from one another.

The main difference is that for allergies, parameters of the specific immune system are tested (antibodies), whereas the Alcat Test is a cellular test, with primarily innate immune cells as target cells. – Please note, that these are two very different pathways and may not exclude each other.

However, the Alcat Test detects sensitivities and NOT allergies. The patient should still avoid all items to which he/she has a known allergy.

 

Should previously reactive foods be reintroduced or consumed before (re-) testing?

Yes, the consumption of previously reactive foods before re-testing after 6 months or foods that the patient considers problematic may set a clear accent before testing.

Foods that are not consumed regularly (provided there is no allergy or coeliac condition) can thus be consumed two or three times within the week before taking the Alcat Test. 

Do you have any questions? Our team of experts is there for you.

Choosing an Alcat test is not always easy. We are happy to help you make the right decision.

If you should have a pre-existing illness, we recommend that you carry out the Alcat Test in agreement with your doctor or healthcare practitioner in order to integrate it into your treatment plan. However, a healthy diet according to the Alcat principle can easily be used for prevention.

Your Alcat team looks forward to answering your enquiries (and concerns) about the test, panel choices or lifestyle related questions that may arise.
