Serum Protein Electrophoresis & Immunofixation Electrophoresis

Slide 8

August 2008

In this next slide, illustrates the analysis of serum from a patient with light chain multiple myeloma. We see that PEL has only a minimally abnormal pattern and the IFE has a small amount of monoclonal lambda light chain. Although this is a myeloma, it is very different from the IgG kappa seen on the previous slide.
