Summation

  • Developed on a unique design and technology platform, Allereye offers non-invasive and rapid (15 minutes) POC detection of IgE in the aid to diagnose allergic reactions in the eye.

Bluejay Diagnostics announced that it has received CE Mark for the Allereye Tear Total IgE Test.  Allereye, an FDA-Cleared point-of-care (POC) device, offers healthcare providers a cost-effective, non-invasive, reliable, easy-to-use solution to aid in the diagnosis of allergic conjunctivitis. Bluejay expects to launch the product in Q2 of 2019 throughout Europe and the Middle East.

Allereye confirms the presence of total IgE in tears. Developed on a unique design and technology platform, Allereye offers non-invasive and rapid (15 minutes) POC detection of IgE in the aid to diagnose allergic reactions in the eye. Such detection at point-of-care might prevent unnecessary dry-eye treatment and unnecessary antibiotic regimen.

Svetlana Dey, President of Bluejay, added, “After receiving very positive feedback from U.S. clinicians and patients, we are confident that Allereye will bring the same value to the patient population throughout Europe and the Middle East.”

Interest in conjunctivitis commonly known as ‘red-eye’ has increased in recent years due to its growing prevalence, increasing healthcare costs, and its impact on patient quality of life. Often allergic, viral, and bacterial related ‘red-eye’ have similar symptoms leading to an inaccurate diagnosis more than half of the time and resulting in unnecessary time away from work, school and play.

Currently about two out of every five people worldwide suffer from allergic conjunctivitis. Itchy eyes are the most common symptom. Seasonal allergic conjunctivitis is the most common form as symptoms are associated with specific aeroallergens. Perennial allergic conjunctivitis persists throughout the year and is often caused by dust mites, molds and pet dander.
