Details

‘Food intolerance’ or non-allergic hypersensitivity is a body’s response after consuming certain foods.  Symptoms are multifaceted and can appear within a few hours or even days after the consumption of the food.  This makes it difficult for, the healthcare professional and the patient to identify the food or foods responsible for the symptoms.  Symptoms can include but are not limited to bloating, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome, headache, rashes etc. 

There is no conclusive test for food intolerance and diagnosis is still a challenge.  However, correlations between food intolerance and increased concentrations of food specific IgG4 have been reported.1,2,3  The NutriSMART® is a semi-quantitative immunoassay that measures the food-specific IgG4 in blood.  The test has been developed by one of Europe’s leading diagnostic specialists, DST, as a support tool to identify the possible food or foods responsible for the symptoms of food intolerance. 

  • A time-saving procedure for you and your patient
  • Hygienic – blood sample and reagents are retained in the device
  • Suitable for adults, pregnant women, and children over the age of 5-years old
  • Stored at 2 – 8 °C – test is run at room temperature

 

NutriSMART® tests for 57 of the most common foods in just 30 minutes using a 50 μL finger-prick blood.  Its innovative design ensures the blood sample and reagents are retained in the device so the test can be carried out almost anywhere making it a practical and hygienic addition to your service. 

 

Important notes

To be used by trained healthcare or fitness/sport professionals.  Food intolerance test results should always be interpreted by a trained healthcare professional along with patient’s medical history.  This is an in vitro screening tool to support and enable diagnosis.  It is not intended as a diagnostic tool.  This point-of-care system semi-quantitatively measures food specific sIgG4.
