ALCAT 食物及化學品敏感測試是甚麼？ What is ALCAT Food & Chemical Sensitivity Testing?
透過血液測試分析免疫細胞（白血球）的炎症反應以評估身體對哪種食物﹑食用化學品或其他物質產生有機會產生敏感反應。It is a blood analysis test assessing which foods, chemicals, or other substances one may be sensitive to by analyzing the inflammatory response of immune cell (white blood cells).
測試的原理是甚麼？ How does the test work?
面臨外來刺激時，白血球會釋發出引致發炎的物質作為防禦反應，白血球的體積及數量亦因此會產生變動，並被記錄下來以作分析。(圖解僅用於說明目的) When white blood cells (leukocyte) are stimulated by an offending trigger, they undergo measurable changes in cell number and volume to release inflammatory substances as a defense, and such changes are being measured and analysed.
