  • Causa
    Immunocap allergen fx20, food contains a mix of f4 (wheat), f5 (rye), f6 (barley), f9 (rice). due to a production non-conformity, certain lots of immunocap allergen fx20, food, may contain traces of oat (f7) allergen. this could cause false positive test results with regard to sensitisation to fx20 allergens for samples that are positive for oat allergen and negative for wheat, rye, barley, and rice allergens. however, this is an unlikely event because of the extensive cross-reactivity between the different cereal allergens and the low probability of monosensitisation to oat allergen in patients. therefore, it is unlikely that presence of oat allergen in immunocap allergen fx20 should result in incorrect test results for patient samples.
  • Acción
    Abacus ALS is advising users of the possibility of false positives with the assay due to the presence of oat allergen. ImmunoCAP whole allergens f4, f5, f6 and f9 can be used as an alternative for testing of patient samples.
