- Container Red-top tube or gel-barrier tube
- Storage Instructions Refrigerate.
- Use Detect possible allergic responses to various substances in the environment such as animals, antibiotics, foods, grasses, house dust, mites, insects, insulin, molds, smuts, trees, and weeds; evaluate hay fever, asthma, atopic eczema, and respiratory allergy.
Quantitative allergen-specific IgE testing is indicated: (1) to determine whether an individual has elevated allergen-specific IgE antibodies, (2) if specific allergic sensitivity is needed to allow immunotherapy to be initiated, (3) when testing patients for agents that may potentially cause anaphylaxis, (4) when evaluating patients who are taking medications (eg, long-acting antihistamines) that interfere with other testing modalities (eg, skin testing), (5) if immunotherapy or other therapeutic measures based on skin testing results have not led to a satisfactory remission of symptoms, and (6) when an individual is unresponsive to medical management where identification of offending allergens may be beneficial.
