IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Allergy, Histamine

Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically plasma or bronchial secretion) to determine the amine beta-imidazolylethylamine (histamine). Histamine is a powerful vasodilator causing a drop in blood pressure and constriction of the bronchial smooth muscles of the lungs. The determination of histamines is mostly used to characterize a patient's abnormal hypersensitivity to substances that are ordinarily harmless (allergens).
