• Traceable against the WHO 2nd International Standard for Human IgE 75/502
  • Well correlated to the market leader
  • Continuously growing panel
  • Fully automated

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 allergen:

  • E001 Cat dander – Felis domesticus

Epidermals (e.g. animal dander, fur, epithelium) are important risk factors for allergic rhinitis and asthma. Fel d 1 is a major allergen and a specific marker for primary cat sensitisation. 60-100 % of cat allergic patients have specific IgE to Fel d 1, thus Fel d 1 can be useful in identifying patients that will respond to Immunotherapy (2).
