Caption: MODEL RELEASED. RAST blood test. Doctor taking blood from the arm of a 11-year-old boy to perform an allergy screen. The blood will be sent to a lab to undergo a radioallergosorbent test (RAST), which is used to identify what a patient is allergic to. The blood is mixed with the suspected allergen and then checked for immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. These are produced by the white blood cells if the person is allergic to that substance.
