Access concise information on how to interpret ImmunoCAPTM Specific IgE test results as well as potential clinical implications to aid in your diagnosis and patient management plan.
Results are reported in the amount of IgE antibodies for a specific allergen in kilounits of allergen per liter of blood (kUA/l).
Results ≥0.1 kUA/l indicate an allergen sensitization, which can be used to help clinically diagnose allergy as long as patient history is taken into account. ImmunoCAP tests alone cannot diagnose a clinical allergy.1
Sensitization levels vary from patient to patient, and there is no standardized numerical amount which indicates the severity of a reaction. Therefore, each patient’s personal symptom history must be considered before diagnosing.
Allergen component tests measure allergic sensitization to specific proteins and/or carbohydrates found in whole allergens, which gives you a deeper understanding of cross-reactivity, potential severity, and potential tolerance.2
