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:

  • T003 Common silver birch – Betula verrucosa
  • T215 rBet v 1 – Betula verrucosa

Tree pollens belong to the most important respiratory allergen sources and sensitised subjects suffer from symptoms of allergic rhinoconjunctivitis and asthma. The geographical distribution of trees drives the patients’ sensitisation profiles. Bet v 2 is a minor allergen from birch pollen and a pan allergen that is present in other pollen, plant food and latex (2).
