Supplementary kit for the quantitative determination of the release of histamine from heparinized whole
blood (this kit has to be used in combination with the Histamine ELISA, for details contact your local supplier). In humans, histamine (ß-imidazole ethylamine) is the most important mediator and is mostly found in
the initial phase of an anaphylactic reaction ("immediate type" allergy). Histamine is produced by the
enzymatic decarboxylation of histidine. In the organism, histamine is present in nearly all tissues, and it
is mainly stored in the metachromatic granules of mast cells and the basophilic leukocytes. It is present
in an inactive bound form and is released only as required.NAME: Histamine ReleaseDESCRIPTION: Supplementary kit for the quantitative determination of Histamine Release in heparinized whole blood.DESIGN: Supplementary kit for 96 determinations of Histamine Release.
