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).

Soybean is a legume and belongs to the Big-8 of allergenic foods inducing symptoms ranging from food allergic reactions to inhalant allergies. Soybean is an important allergen source and widely used in processed foods. Due to different routes and amounts of exposure IgE-mediated sensitizations and clinical symptoms differ. Early gastro-intestinal and/or cutaneous sensitisation to stable soybean allergens may lead to severe systemic reactions after small amounts of soybean products. Oropharyngeal and sometimes systemic allergic symptoms after consumption of mildly processed soy products can appear in birch pollen sensitized individuals due to cross-reactivity of the PR-10 proteins Bet v 1 and Gly m 4.(2)
