empower Nickel

The empower Nickel Sensitivity Test is designed to determine the presence of genetic variants that may affect your sensitivity to nickel. Nickel is a common metal found in many everyday items such as jewellery, kitchen utensils and zippers, as well as in many foods such as tomatoes, canned goods, cocoa, and chocolate. Some people may be more sensitive to nickel and develop allergic reactions or skin irritation when exposed to this metal. This nutritional genetic test is based on DNA analysis taken with a simple cotton swab, from the comfort of your home. We will take a sample whenever you want and analyse it in Eurofins' Genoma laboratory, one of the largest in Europe.


The test analyses the NLRP3, GSTP1, HLA-DRA, and SLC11A1 genes responsible for Nickel sensitivity.
