Fluorescence Enzyme Immunoassay (FEIA).
The allergen class may not be predictive of clinical disease in some patients. The diagnosis of allergy should be based upon patient history and clinical findings. The diagnosis of allergy should not be based upon laboratory findings alone.
Positive assay results indicate a high probability of allergic disease. Negative assay results effectively rule out allergy induced by those allergens.
