Who is Lorisian?
Lorisian specialises in offering laboratory tests that measure food intolerances.
Lorisian was set up in 1982. One of their big breakthroughs in 1998 was the ELISA test kit to identify the presence of the HIV virus, still used today. Their food-specific IgG method has had more papers published about its performance than other food food-specific IgG tests on the market. Lorisian Laboratory uses consistent and controlled manufacturing processes and operating procedures. They are Europe's leading provider of food and drink intolerance tests and have more than 30 years of experience.
