IgE (Immunoglobin E)
Rapid CDIATM IgE test kits are intended for the screen and diagnosis for allergic diseases, autoimmune disorders and suspecting parasitic infection
E (IgE) is a kind of antibody consisting of two heavy
chains (ε chain) and two light chains. IgE antibodies are found in the lungs,
skin, and mucous membranes. They are associated mainly with allergic reactions
and parasitic infections. Ig E primes the IgE-mediated allergic response by
binding to Fc receptors found on the surface of mast
cells and basophils. It is showed that IgE level also increases when infected
by parasites such as hookworms, Schistosoma mansoni, Necator americanus, and nematodes in human.
Both lateral flow test and ELISA to detect allergen specific IgE are available in CDIATMtest.
