An automated assay for the quantitative determination of Specific IgE in human serum on the IDS System. The results are to be used as an aid in the diagnosis and management of allergic disorders in conjunction with other clinical findings. The presence of allergen-specific IgE antibodies in serum is referred to as sensitisation and is an important risk factor for allergic reactions upon re-exposure to the allergen (1).

Associated allergens:

  • F002 Cow`s Milk – Bos spp
  • F076 Alpha-lactalbumin– Bos spp
  • F077 Beta-lactoglobulin– Bos spp

Milk belongs to the Big-8 of allergenic foods and is one of the most frequent causes of food allergy in children with symptoms ranging from neurodermitis, urticaria, gastro-intestinal pain, asthma to anaphylaxis. Around 80% of the children outgrow their milk allergy by the age of 2-5. Casein is a heat-stable protein and the most abundant one in milk. Casein is a high-risk marker for allergic reactions to milk and cooked milk. The milk components can be useful in identifying patients with a risk of severe allergic reactions and to aid in dietary recommendations (2).
