Immunodiffusion (Aspergillus Niger IgG);Precipitin (Aspergillus Niger IgG)
Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis: Immunoglobulin E level (IGE), Aspergillus fumagatus #1 (ASPF1), Aspergillus flavus (ASPFL), Aspergillus polyvalent mix (M1), Aspergilllus fumagatus #6 (ASPF6), Aspergillus fumagatus specific IgE (RM3), Aspergillus fumagatus specific IgG (TGMIS)
Precipitating IgG antibodies are often present in serum of patients with hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) due to exposure to enviromental antigens. The serum precipitin test assists in the diagnosis of HP.
