When the immune system steps out of line…
RIDASCREEN® Spec. IgG Foodscreen detects delayed food allergies. This precise and reliable ELISA test identifies specific IgG antibodies to particular foods in human serum.
Delayed food allergies – a growing problem
Allergies cause more and more health problems. It is estimated that 20 % to 40 % of the population have an IgG-mediated (type III) food allergy. Such IgG-mediated food allergies are not immediately obvious but induce a range of delayed symptoms (e.g. chronic digestive disorders, headaches, migraines and weight problems) that may seem unrelated to specific foods.
RIDASCREEN® Spec. IgG Foodscreen – detecting a delayed food allergy
RIDASCREEN® Spec. IgG Foodscreen is an enzyme immunoassay for the detection of specific IgG antibodies against food antigens in human serum. It analyses IgG antibody reactions to up to 271 possible triggers of chronic diseases.
RIDASCREEN® Spec. IgG Foodscreen provides pre-coated plates in a modular format offering the patients different tests to choose from.
Several plates in a modular system – choose the test that best suits your patient
Prescreen 1 is designed to test for general sensitization to the most common foodstuffs. It is a cost-saving tool used to select the allergen composition for further testing. 22 most common foodstuffs are tested. The plate is designed for four patients.
Plate 6 is designed for two patients and includes the 44 most common foodstuffs.
Plate 1, 2 and 3 have a modular composition: Plate 1 (90 allergens) includes the most common foodstuffs, Plate 2 (90 allergens) the most common alternatives to the foodstuffs on Plate 1 and Plate 3 (91 allergens) includes rare and exotic foodstuffs and herbs/spices. Each plate is designed for one patient.
These plates are designed for individual configuration with a maximum of 91 allergens per plate for one or more patients. The system is extremely flexible and highly individual, providing a selection of more than 300 allergens including region-specific allergens you can choose from.
