Abstract

The application of a reverse enzyme-immunoassay (REIA) to measure specific anti-egg IgE is described. The results obtained with the REIA and the RAST are shown. The REIA is economical, easy and fast to perform when the conjugate has been made, non-radioactive and offers a new alternative for the in vitro evaluation of egg white-specific IgE.
