The diagnostic spectrum of the clinical immunological laboratory encompasses the areas autoimmune diagnostics, infectious serology, serological allergy diagnostics and molecular genetics.
The following techniques are mainly used: indirect immunofluorescence, enzyme immunotests, luminescence immunotests, radioimmunoassays (RIA) and microarrays.

In Europe, around every fourth child under ten years old suffers from an allergy. Allergies are reactions of the immune system to specific, normally harmless environmental substances (allergens). These reactions can be severe. Only when the triggers have been identified can the affected person avoid exposure or obtain targeted therapy. Our specific IgE antibody tests make an important contribution to this process.
Our laboratory offers a complete range of serological allergy diagnostics using line blots, ELISA and luminescence procedures. These increasingly employ recombinant or precisely characterised native allergen components in place of poorly defined raw extracts, so-called single purified allergen components (SPAC).
