Soy Component Panel
This assay is used to detect allergen specific-IgE using the ImmunoCAP® FEIA method. In vitro allergy testing is the primary testing mode for allergy diagnosis.
The ImmunoCAP® FEIA method uses as the solid phase a flexible, hydrophobic cellulosic polymer to which allergen has been covalently linked. The advantage of this system is that it has a very high antigen binding capacity when compared to other systems and it has minimal non-specific binding with high total IgE. Viracor Eurofins provides an optional low range calibrator at 0.1 kU/L and a 0/1 class. This test has been cleared or approved for diagnostic use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Note that Viracor Eurofins includes an extra calibrator at 0.10 kU/L and uses it to
define an optional equivocal class.
Lipemic samples may lead to rejection.
Specimens are approved for testing in New York only when indicated in the Specimen Information field above.
