  • Product overview

    ab108650 Immunoglobulin E (IgE) Human ELISA Kit is intended for the quantitative determination of Immunoglobulin E (IgE) concentration in Human serum.

    Patients with atopic allergic diseases such as atopic asthma, atopic dermatitis, and hay fever have been shown to exhibit increased total immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels in blood. IgE is also known as the reagenic antibody. In general, elevated levels of IgE indicate an increased probability of an IgE-mediated hypersensitivity, responsible for allergic reactions. Parasitic infestations such as hookworm, and certain clinical disorders including aspergillosis, have also been demonstrated to cause high levels of IgE. Decreased levels of IgE are found in cases of hypogammaglobulinemia, autoimmune diseases, ulcerative colitis, hepatitis, cancer, and malaria. Cord blood or serum IgE levels may have prognostic value in assessing the risk of future allergic conditions in children. The IgE serum concentration in a patient is dependent on both the extent of the allergic reaction and the number of different allergens to which he is sensitized. Nonallergic normal individuals have IgE concentrations that vary widely and increase steadily during childhood, reaching their highest levels at age 15 to 20, and thereafter remaining constant until about age 60 when they slowly decline.

Average Good 4/5 (Ease of Use)
We did the experiment with the standard protocol, but the experiment was failed.
So we did the troubleshooting experiment and found the label fault.

The TMB reagent label was attached on the bottle of enzyme conjugate reagent, and the enzyme conjugate reagent label was attached on the bottle of TMB reagent!

Our important samples was wasted !

We contacted the Korean technical support team, and complained this problem.

There is some doubt about every kit, and researchers should check the label of reagent before do the experiment!

Note from Abcam Scientific Support - We are very sorry for this mislabeling and sincerely regret the loss of samples. To help resolve this issue we have provided a new kit free of charge.
