Minimally invasive assessment of IgE mediated allergy
A system and method for determining the presence and level of allergy indicators in a human fluid sample such as, but not limited to, blood serum and saliva, is disclosed. In another embodiment, the method may assess a level of allergens in a consumable product. The system and method may make use of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles that have modified surfaces suitable for attracting allergy indicators from human fluid sample and allergens from consumable products. The system and method may provide a minimally invasive assessment of allergy indicators to determine whether one is allergic to a substance.
