Isocyanates, including hexamethylene diisocyanate (HDI), are chemicals often used in industries such as painting, insulation installation, and automotive manufacturing. They are known to be potent respiratory and skin sensitizers, meaning they can cause allergic reactions. This Allergen, Individual - Occupational Isocyanate HDI test can help determine if you have developed an allergy to HDI.

When you're exposed to a substance like HDI that you're allergic to, your immune system overreacts, leading to an allergic response. Symptoms of such a response can range from mild skin reactions, eye irritation, and coughing to more serious conditions like asthma. The test works by detecting specific Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies that your immune system produces in response to HDI.
