BUHLMANN Allergy Assay Offering
Diagnosis of food allergy can be quite cumbersome. Screening tests like skin prick tests and serology determination of IgE antibodies specific to foods are the only measure of the sensitization to foods supporting clinicians in the diagnostic workflow.
While the gold standard for diagnosis remains the oral food challenge (OFC), a novel diagnostic, the Basophil Activation Test (BAT), is a standardized in vitro induction of the allergic reaction in a patients collected basophils and is reported to reproduce a patient’s allergic reaction in a safe blood test (Scott et al., 2017). Compared to the in vivo OFC, the in vitro BAT assay bears much less risk to the patient and overall cost. (Duan et al., 2021).
