Evaluate patients suspected of having hypersensitivity pneumonitis induced by exposure to Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus fumigatus, Aurebasidium pullulans, Micropolyspora faeni, Saccharomonospora viridis, Thermoactinomyces candidus, Thermoactinomyces vulgaris, or pigeon serum.
Qualitative Immunodiffusion/Quantitative ImmunoCAP Fluorescent Enzyme Immunoassay
Serum Separator Tube (SST).
Separate from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Transfer two 2.5 mL aliquots of serum to individual ARUP Standard Transport Tubes. (Min: 1 mL Per aliquot)
Plasma. Contaminated, hemolyzed, or severely lipemic specimens.
After separation from cells: Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year (avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles)
Allergen results of 0.10-0.34 kU/L are intended for specialist use as the clinical relevance is undetermined. Even though increasing ranges are reflective of increasing concentrations of allergen-specific IgE, these concentrations may not correlate with the degree of clinical response or skin testing results when challenged with a specific allergen. The correlation of allergy laboratory results with clinical history and in vivo reactivity to specific allergens is essential. A negative test may not rule out clinical allergy or even anaphylaxis.
Compliance Statement A: For laboratory developed tests using a manufacturer labeled ASR as the reagent providing the specificity of the assay. Analyte Specific Reagent. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, the FDA has determined that such clearance or approval is not necessary.
Testing includes antibodies directed at Aspergillus fumigatus #1, A. fumigatus #2, A. fumigatus #3, A. fumigatus #6, A. flavus, Aureobasidium pullulans, Micropolyspora faeni, Thermoactinomyces vulgaris #1, T. candidus, Saccharomonospora viridis and pigeon serum. Testing also includes the following allergens: Feather Mix, Beef, Pork, and Phoma betae.
