Allergy diagnostics

Diagnostic assessment, medical indications, therapy monitoring and counselling

In allergy diagnostics, knowledge of primary sensitisations and cross-reactions plays an important role when making treatment decisions. In particular where the therapy of choice is specific immunotherapy (SIT), the diagnostic results for the specific components are essential for a successful outcome. We offer full laboratory diagnostics for allergic disorders, providing support ranging from assistance in diagnostic assessment to treatment indications.

Our core services in allergy diagnostics

  • Laboratory testing for assessment of IgE-mediated immediate-type reactions (type I reaction)
  • Determination of specific IgE antibodies against allergen mixtures, single allergens and allergen components
  • Laboratory diagnostics for allergic disorders such as allergic rhino-conjunctivitis, bronchial asthma, neurodermatitis, gastrointestinal disorders, anaphylaxis and urticaria
  • Determination of allergen components to confirm indication of SIT
  • Indication-based allergy profiles for assessment of allergic symptoms
  • Molecular allergy diagnostics based on Immuno-Solid-phase Allergen Chip (ISAC) technology including detailed tests for 112 specific allergy components (ISAC testing by Leipzig-based partner laboratory)
  • Laboratory testing for suspected exogenous allergic alveolitis (EAA) and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) based on specific IgG determinations (type III allergy)
  • Bestimmung der Tryptase bei Verdacht auf Mastozytose und bei anaphylaktischer Reaktion
  • Determination of tryptase in patients with suspicion of mastocytosis and with anaphylactic reaction
  • Determination of other relevant allergy parameters such as total IgE and eosinophil cationic protein (ECP)
