A double-immunostaining halogen immunoassay was developed to identify aerosolized conidia, hyphae, and fragments of Alternaria alternata by using an anti-Alternaria polyclonal antiserum, while, simultaneously, allergy to these components was concurrently determined by using human immunoglobulin E antibodies.
