Allergy affects many children and adults around the world but most people aren’t diagnosed and even a lower percentage is diagnosed correctly. For these reasons Allergy is considered one of the most common and undertreated health issues in the world and better diagnosis is needed. The company’s product line include the ImmunoCAP tests and assays – specific IgE tests for over 600 allergens, total IgE, Tryptase, specific IgG and IgG4 tests. ImmunoCAP diagnostics tests are acknowledged as the gold standard technology for specific IgE blood testing thanks to over 50 years of experience, more than 6,000 publications and references in multiple health guidelines.
A new concept of testing, introduced in Israel by Gamidor, is Molecular Allergy testing. Molecular Allergy can be tested on the Phadia Laboratory Systems or on a multiplex platform – ImmunoCAP ISAC.
Molecular Allergy tests allow to identify components in the allergen source and to distinguish between specific and cross-reactive components in order to improve risk assessment and patient management.
ImmunoCAP® ISAC is a highly advanced tool for revealing the patient’s IgE antibody profile. This advanced technology enables a simultaneous measurement of IgE antibodies to a fixed panel of 112 components from 51 allergen sources in a single step, using only 30 ul of serum or plasma.
Autoimmune disorders are rare and difficult to diagnose. Thermo Scientific offers 57 clinically relevant tests manufactured to help healthcare providers make a better diagnosis and more informed treatment decisions using EliA technology and products. The test portfolio includes markers for the diagnosis of the most frequent systemic and organ-specific autoimmune diseases, including connective tissue diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, antiphospholipid syndrome, vasculitis and Goodpasture syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, pernicious anemia, autoimmune liver diseases, and autoimmune thyroid diseases.
