Allermetrix has developed its own liquid allergen method that
demonstrates greater sensitivity than solid-phase assays available
today. It is calibrated to the WHO (75/502) primary reference
standard and reports quantitative specific IgE results as well as
modified RAST classes for over 480 different allergens. The liquid
allergen used in the Allermetrix assay presents the allergen in a
natural conformation rather than denatured on a solid phase.
Therefore in some cases the IgE antibodies may see allergen
epitopes that are not well preserved on solid-phase tests.
