Abstract: Molecular mechanisms determining the allergy process and its public health repercussion have been a matter of study since the allergy term designation. The so-called allergens, which provoke this condition, can trigger a cross-reaction (CR) phenomenon whereby people respond against them even if they have not been previously sensitized. Within these, pan-allergens are considered some of the responsible agents of most CR processes in Europe. When it comes to diagnosing these reactions, the Lateral Flow Immunoassay (LFIA) stands out among all the other methods. In addition to the great precision and quickness of its results, this test is currently a promising bet to enable the allergy diagnosis to the population, avoiding the requirement of health service intervention. In this project a novel and attractive LFIA kit to detect pan-allergens and CR is designed, by analyzing and enhancing if possible each of its different components.
