Direct on air sampling filter quantification of cat allergen.

A direct on sampling filter in solution (DOSIS) method for quantification of airborne cat allergens has been developed. In this method, the allergens firmly adsorbed to a porous polytetrafluoroethylene filter are reacted with specific antibodies conjugated to alkaline phosphatase, generating a matrix-bound allergen-antibody-phosphatase complex. The treated… CONTINUE READING
