Why Alcat Testing?

The Alcat Test is a biological immune cell activation test that identifies inflammation causing foods. Detected cell changes reflect the overall effect on various complex immune pathways/interactions. This approach is unique and unlike any other food sensitivity test, it is validated.

How does it work?

A blood sample is sent to the Cell Science laboratory. The sample goes through a multi-step quality assurance process. During testing, your immune cells are confronted with foods and/or items including additives, colorings, molds, medicinal herbs, and chemical agents. After testing, the results are presented in a clear and easy to read color-coded format, showing you which foods/substances to which you had a severe reaction, moderate reaction, mild reaction, and no reaction.

The Immune system is a double edged sword.

It should react appropriately and protect against infection when confronted with harmful invaders or “infectious agents” like viruses or bacteria. Unfortunately for some, exposure to common foods, chemicals and molds may trigger chronic activation of the immune system. The Alcat Test has provided healthcare professionals and their patients with a tool for managing a wide variety of conditions linked to inflammation and chronic activation such as:

Skin Problems

Eczema, acne, inflammatory rashes, psoriasis

Metabolic Function

Overweight, diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid dysfunction.

Respiratory Complaints

Asthma, chronic stuffy nose, recurrent sinusitis.

Neurological Diseases

Migraine, chronic fatigue, depression, unspecified anxiety, ADHD/ADD


Rheumatism, arthritis, aching limbs, fibromyalgia

Gastrointestinal Complaints

IBS, diarrhea, constipation, flatulence, inflammatory bowel disease.

Test micronutrient and antioxidant needs to nourish and protect your body at the cellular level. 

Nutrients are essential to health. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids are utilized within cells and are the “spark” behind metabolic reactions. It is also vital to maintain balance between oxidant stress and antioxidant factors to prevent damage in the body.

Whether you consume a health promoting eating pattern or find yourself struggling with balanced nutrition, this test can support:

Nutrition & Health

status optimization with tailored food and supplement plan

Chronic & Metabolic Conditions

increased blood pressure, and blood sugar, excess body fat, abnormal cholesterol


fatigue, depression, mood swings, low vitality


management, obesity

Women's Health

fertility, pregnancy, lactation, perimenopause, menopause

Pre & Post-Surgery

High Performance

and/or severe stress                                           

Sports Nutrition

Your micronutrient test:

  • Test to determine your cellular micronutrient status. 52 vitamins, minerals, amino acids
  • Nutrient stores in cells reflect long-term nutritional status and have the most functional impact. We analyze the direct response of your immune cells (lymphocytes) when individual micronutrients are added to them. Increased nutrient need is indicated by an increase in activity of your cells.

How to get tested

  • A simple blood draw is needed
  • Get your results in 5-7 days
  • Nutrients are highlighted according to your cellular responses.
  • Descriptions of each “insufficient” nutrient and “protective” antioxidant are provided along with foods to emphasize to meet the increased nutrient need.
