Histamine is a biogenic amine involved in local immune responses as well as regulating physiological function in the gut and acting as a neurotransmitter. Histamine is released in the body during allergic reactions, causing the typical itching, sneezing, wheezing and swelling allergy symptoms. Histamine also increases the permeability of the capillaries to white blood cells and some proteins, to allow them to engage pathogens in the infected tissues.
With food, pollen and other allergies on the rise worldwide, the ability to quickly and accurately quantify histamine levels is a vital tool for both medical and research laboratories and the pharma and food industries.
