Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Anti-tryptase, covalently coupled to ImmunoCAP, reacts with tryptase in the patient serum specimen. After washing, enzyme-labeled antibodies against tryptase are added to form a complex. After incubation, unbound enzyme-labeled antibodies are washed away and the bound complex is incubated with a developing agent. After stopping the reaction, the fluorescence in the eluate is measured. The fluorescence is directly proportional to the concentration of tryptase in the serum specimen.(Package insert: ImmunoCAP Tryptase, Phadia AB, Uppsala, Sweden)
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
