  1. Do you have any ImmunoCAP for testing Pine resin?

    Allergy towards Pine resin is not an IgE mediated reaction but a contact allergy, a type 4 reaction. It cannot be determined by a blood test, but a patch test has to be used instead.

  2. How many gram IgE correspond to 1U IgE?

    1 U IgE = 2,42 nanogram

As in all diagnostic testing, the diagnosis is made by the physican based on both test results and the patient history.
