Consolidate and Improve Calprotectin Testing on Clinical Chemistry Analyzers with ALPCO

For laboratories with a compatible clinical chemistry analyzer, upgrading to the calprotectin immunoturbidimetric assay can improve efficiency and generate additional capacity. Laboratories can potentially eliminate a CLIA system or simply create new capacity on that system by transferring calprotectin to another analyzer.

8 Questions to Ask Before Choosing an Allergy Testing Platform

1. What percentage of your IgE allergy testing panel consists of molecular allergens rather than allergen extracts? The ALEX2 IgE allergen panel consists of 117 extracts and 183 molecular allergens. This represents the largest panel of molecular allergens on the market, including 50+ unique molecular allergens. Because molecular allergens can be precisely replicated with very high purity, th...

GeneProof PCR Panel for Sexually Transmitted Infections

What are Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)? STIs, or sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), are those most often transmitted through sexual contact, but can also be transmitted to children from infected mothers during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.1 There are over 20 different types of STIs and the CDC estimates that 1 in 5 people in the United States alone is infected.2 C...
Improving Food Elimination Diets with IgG Testing

Improving Food Elimination Diets with IgG Testing

Food sensitivity or food intolerance involves a non-allergic response to a food or food additive. In a recent on-line survey conducted in the U.S., 24% of adults aged 18 to 79 reported a food intolerance. While a food allergy is typically mediated by IgE antibodies, adverse reactions to food observed in patients with functional GI  disorders, such as IBS, may be due to a delayed immunological response involving Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies. Problem foods and food additives are believed to activate mast cells through the binding of IgG antibodies. Increased intestinal mast cell activation has been demonstrated in cases of IBD and IBS.
