In 2010 we introduced a new method for collection and testing cat allergen. For the first time, it is possible to measure the amount of allergen a kittens will produce when it is mature.
The majority of allergies to cats are caused by Fel d1, a very small allergen found in the saliva and on the fur. Cats produce very different amounts of this allergen. A few cats have been found that produce less than 1% of the normal levels of the Fel d1 allergen.
These tests measure the amount of Fel d 1 allergen in cat saliva using ELISA technology. Kittens tested with our methods have been placed in homes with mild to very severe cat allergies with excellent success. At this time, we are only marketing testing kits to breeders.
