The AllergyScreen® test is an immunoblot assay for the quantitative determination of circulating allergen-specific Immunoglobulin E (IgE) in human serum with up to 20 allergens per test.
The advantage over determinations with single systems is the simple analysis of a whole range of allergens in one operation, whereby only 250 µl of serum are necessary for 20 allergens, within 2.5 hours.
The results are printed out in iU/ml (range 0.35 – 100 iU/ml) as well as in classes (1-6).
The Lebanese food and inhalation panels have been customized to make available the allergens relevant locally. Results from several labs all over the country have been compiled to come up with the most suitable panels 20 allergens per test.
