48 Inhalant Panel

Spores and pollens from trees, grasses, mold, dust, and others can produce symptoms that range from minor to severe in affected individuals. Our inhalant panels assess IgG, IgG4, and IgA antibody response to 48 common allergens, providing helpful information for effective management of airborne sensitivities.

Testing Process

Our 48-inhalant panel is a quantitative ELISA anaIysis of specific IgG, IgG4, or IgA antibodies to 48 common airborne allergens.

Specimens are tested in duplicate on ELISA platform. We follow a diligent process to extract the key component from each analyte to ensure the antibody present in the patients’ serum will bind to it, and validate with positive and negative controls. The IgG, IgG4, and/or IgA antibodies, once bound to antigen, are detected through spectrophotometric analysis wherein the values are directly proportional to the concentration of the analytes in the sample.
