What is the relation between kUA/l and PAU/l?

There is a strong correlation between PAU/l from Phadiatop and the sum of kUA/l from single allergen determinations of the included allergens, but in general somewhat lower levels could be expected with Phadiatop. To simplify the interpretation of Phadiatop many laboratories use the same unit (kUA/l) for Phadiatop as for Specific IgE, however not 100 % correct but will not lead to any clinical implications and could thus be accepted.
