Free Light Chains & Monoclonal Gammopathies

Impact on Diagnostic Panels



Diagnostic Tests

Slide 2

August 2008

I will be talking about three tests: protein electrophoresis, immunofixation electrophoresis, and serum free light chain quantitation. There are of course lots of other diagnostic tests used for monoclonal gammopathies; hemoglobin for anemia, creatinine for renal function, bone x-rays for bony lesions, for example. In all of the tests, in the bottom portion of the slide are to help identify and characterize the particular disease associated with the monoclonal gammopathy.
