South Pasadena, CA, February 28th, 2014
LA Testing, a division of EMSL Analytical, Inc., now offers testing for indoor allergens for dog, cat, cockroach, rat, mice and dust mite allergens at the South Pasadena, California laboratory.
Allergens in homes, schools and places of business impact millions of people each year. According to published medical reports, one out of every five Americans suffers from allergies. Pet owners are subjected to higher rates of indoor air quality issues as allergens remain in the air, surfaces and fabrics for longer periods of time.
Allergies are tough to escape and seem to have an increasing effect on people despite age or geographical location,” said Dr. Jason Dobranic, Vice President of Microbiology at LA Testing. “They can be triggered by many factors at any time. The first step to ultimately reduce allergies and symptoms is to determine your environmental exposure by lab testing.”
Allergic reactions occur after repeated exposure to a specific biological allergen. A reaction may occur immediately upon re-exposure or after multiple exposures over time. As a result, people who have noticed only mild allergic reactions, or no reactions at all in the past, may find themselves very sensitive to specific allergens.
“Our laboratories work hard to provide accurate and rapid results throughout the entire state of California,” said Dr. Dobranic. “With proper testing, people can eliminate some of the most common biological contaminants found in homes and buildings that cause allergies.”
