ALLERgen specific IgG / IgG4
ELISA kits

Enzymimmunoassay for the quantitative determination of allergen-specific immunoglobulin G/G4 (IgG/IgG4) in human serum or plasma

Immunoglobulins IgG(4) participate in the occurrence and progress of non-IgE-mediated allergy to various diseases, on the basis of which the participation of IgG-mediated reactions of hypersensitivity, so-called type II and III effects, can be assumed. The quantitative measurement of the allergen-specific IgG(4) concentration is of great importance for the diagnosis of food intolerance, for the selection of an appropriate therapy and for the differential diagnosis of some types of allergies. In combination with other methods, the effectiveness of allergen-specific immunotherapy can be controlled.
Die ALLERgen-Kits basieren auf dem µ-capture Enzymimmunassay, wobei dieselben Festphasen-Mikrowells, die mit humanen anti-IgG(4)-Antikörpern beschichtet sind, für die Analyse der verschiedenen Allergene und zur Erstellung der Eichkurve verwendet werden.

In the ALLERgenA spec. IgG(4) kit for the detection of IgG(4) antibodies that are specific for certain allergens, two types of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay are used. Sandwich type analysis is used in microwells for standards. Indirect solid-phase enzyme immunodetection is used in microwells used for blood serum samples. The surface of the microwells is coated with streptavidin. The kit uses two monoclonal antibodies that are specific for different epitopes of immunoglobulins IgG(4). One of these antibodies is conjugated to biotin esters; the other is conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (HRP). Binding of IgG(4) molecules contained in standards with anti-IgG(4) biotin conjugate and simultaneous immobilization in the solid phase by streptavidin molecules take place during the first incubation . At the same stage, the binding of biotinylated allergens with IgG(4) molecules takes place in the microwells filled with sample serum, which are specific for these allergens, and immobilizes them in the solid phase by streptavidin. The excess anti-IgG(4) biotin is removed from the microwells of the standards and the excess of biotinylated allergens is removed from the microwells of the samples by washing. During the second incubation, anti-IgG(4) peroxidase conjugate (MAB2) binds to IgG(4) molecules in the microwells of the standards with the calibrators and to IgG(4) molecules of the tested samples in the microwells. Excess anti-IgG(4) peroxidase conjugate is removed by decanting and washing the microwells. The color level changes during the incubation with TMB. The degree of color is related to the amount of bound anti-IgG(4) peroxidase conjugate. Based on calibration curves with an optical density value, measured at 450 nm and 405 nm, the concentration of specific IgG(4) in the tested samples is defined after the optical density measurement of the solution in the microwells.
