ALLERGEN PANEL, CHILDHOOD ENVIRONMENTAL, SERUM

Test Code CEAP 
Test ALLERGEN PANEL, CHILDHOOD ENVIRONMENTAL, SERUM 
Methodology ImmunoCAP® Fluorescence Enzyme Immunassay (FEIA) 
Description Panel includes: IgE, Total, D. farinae (D2C), D. pteronyssinus (D1C), Cat dander (E1C), Dog dander (E5C), A. alternata (M6C), and C. herbarum (M2C)

NOTE: This multiallergen IgE antibody test, combined with measurement of IgE, Total in serum, is a very sensitive first-order test for allergic disease. Positive results indicate a high probability of allergic disease induced by one or more allergens present in the multiallergen panel. Negative results effectively rule out allergy, except in rare cases of allergic disease induced by exposure to a single allergen. 

Specimen Draw blood in a plain red-top or serum gel tube. Spin down and send 1.5 mL (minimum volume: 1.0 mL) refrigerated serum. 
Reference Values < 0.10 kU/L - Undetectable (Normal)

0.10 - 0.34 kU/L - For specialist use only:
Clinical Relevance Undetermined

0.35 - 0.69 kU/L - Low level of allergy, indicative of ongoing sensitization

0.70 - 3.49 kU/L - Moderate level of allergy, indicative of stronger ongoing sensitization

3.5 - 17.49 kU/L - High level of allergy, indicative of high level sensitization

17.5 - 49.9 kU/L - Very high level of allergy, indicative of very high level sensitization

50 - 99.9 kU/L - Very high level of allergy, indicative of very high level sensitization

> or = 100 kU/L - Very high level of allergy, indicative of very high sensitization
