Test ID PEANT Peanut, IgE with Reflex to Peanut Components, IgE, Serum

Useful For

Evaluation of patients with suspected peanut allergy

 

Evaluation of patients with possible peanut cross-reactivity

Reflex Tests

Test ID Reporting Name Available Separately Always Performed
PNTCP Peanut Components, IgE, S No No

Testing Algorithm

Testing begins with analysis of peanut IgE. If peanut IgE is negative (<0.10 kU/L), testing is complete.

 

If peanut IgE is ≥0.10 kU/L, then 7 peanut components (Ara h 2, Ara h 1, Ara h 3, Ara h 6, Ara h 8, Ara h 9, and profilin Bet v2) are performed at an additional charge.

Highlights

The determination of the relative amount of IgE antibody to total peanut, and IgE antibodies to specific peanut components, can aid in assessment of the potential strength and type of allergenic response to peanuts.

 

IgE antibody to total peanut extract will be tested.

 

If detectable total peanut IgE antibody is present, additional specific peanut allergen antibody testing will be performed. This is comprised of testing for IgE antibodies to the potential allergens Ara h 2, Ara h 1, Ara h 3, Ara h 6, Ara h 8, Ara h 9, and profilin Bet v2.
