Interpretation

IgE Reference Range (performed on the Phadia ImmunoCAP)
In clinically healthy subjects the serum IgE levels exhibit a wide distribution range and do not follow a normal distribution. The reference value provided is from the Phadia reagent kit insert.
Serum IgE concentrations in children are highly dependent on age. Adult values are achieved by 7-10 years of age with higher values at about 10-15 years of age. Serum concentration of up to 100 IU/mL in adults can be considered the upper limit of the reference range. Serum IgE levels in older children may be up to twice the adult level.
Moderately elevated levels of Total Serum IgE (>100 kU/L) tend to be found more commonly in atopic patients, although lower levels do not exclude atopic illnesses. Markely elevated levels may be found in patients with atopic eczema, allergic broncopulmonary aspergillosis, parasitic infestation and hyper-IgE syndrome.
These reference ranges should be used as a guide only.
Reference values for serum IgE <100 IU/mL
