Allergic and other hypersensitivity reactions to foods and aeroallergens are characterized by elevated allergen-specific antibody levels in the affected individual’s blood. Research indicates that these types of reactions are implicated in a number of health problems. Through our Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) methodology we provide a useful tool for practitioners to assess their patients' allergies and sensitivities to a variety of common allergens.
Our standard, curve based method for our semi-quantitative allergen-specific IgE ELISA is traceable to World Health Organization’s standards. These standards increase immunoassay sensitivity against a broad range of allergen concentrations allowing for the detection of minute levels of IgE antibodies in a serum specimen for accurate assay performance. This respect for global standards and attention to detail guarantees the highest quality antibody testing for your patients.
For a comprehensive look at the body’s immune reaction to foods and inhalants, US BioTek Laboratories offers the following antibody assays:
7-Zone Color Bar Graph - This offers a visual representation of a patient's antibody levels shown against the
respective antigens from our food and inhalant panels.
Foods and Aeroallergens - These are grouped by type, e.g. dairy, nuts/grains, molds, pollens, etc.
Individualized Report - A FoodStats Antibody Assessment comes with each food antibody report exhibiting high reactions.
