Lorisian has over 30 years’ experience in laboratory diagnostic testing and are Europe’s leading provider of food and drink intolerance tests.

Lorisian food intolerance tests use a very simple finger prick blood collection wand system so is really ease to use. The blood prick sample can be taken at your workplace (for Corporates) or in the comfort of your own home if you are unable to call to my clinic in Cork.

The sample is then posted back to the Lorisian Laboratory, tested and analysed for IgG antibody reactions to the food and drink ingredients listed for the test you chose. Your results are back in approx 10 working days.

“Lorisian food intolerance testing service is the only laboratory IgG food intolerance test that I trust, and would recommend it to everyone”
