Allergy test (blood draw)

Show all
For the allergy test, do I only need to be tested once in a lifetime?
An allergy test only reflects the current concentration of specific antibodies inside the body. With changes of body status and exposure to the environment, the type and quantity of specific antibodies may change, which needs to be determined by another test.
What should I pay attention to before taking an allergy test?
You can just keep your original eating habits before the test, and don't need to be on any diet.
To take the test, what should I pay attention to?
Customers should present their identity documents to confirm their identity on the testing day. Steroid medications or/and immunosuppressant may affect the test results. Abstaining from certain foods for three months or more may affect the test result too. The test result should only be used as a reference and is not suitable for diagnosis or/and treatment. The purchased service is valid for 2 months, and customers should get tested within 2 months of purchase (from the date of payment confirmation). It will become invalid afterwards. If you have any questions about our tests, please call our centre at (852) 2697 1115.

If the test results show that my child does not have certain talent or personality traits, how should I treat or deal with it?
The purpose of the Talent-PRO genetic testing is to help parents learn more about their children's possible talents, personality and physique so that they can find suitable directions to bring up their children. If the test results show that your child may not have certain talents, it reflects that nurturing may be more important. More efforts will be needed if you want your child to develop in this aspect. Individualizing the teaching approach to each child's aptitude and personality is exactly what we are focusing on.
Does a person only need to do the genetic test once in a lifetime?
Yes! Each item only needs to be tested once. We provide different testing services, and it is recommended to choose the most suitable one for yourself. In general, our genes will not change in our lifetime. So for each item in the Talent-PRO, Wellness-PRO & Beauty-PRO we just need to be tested once. if you are interested in our Talent-PRO, we strongly recommend your child to take the test before 1 year old, so that you can learn your child’s potential and possible weaknesses earlier in terms of talent, personality and physique, and nurture it appropriately.
