Kappa and Lambda Free Light Chains (Bence Jones Protein), Quantitative, Urine
Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

IFE Interpretation by report
Test Information: Total Protein
Total urinary protein is determined nephelometrically by adding the albumin and Kappa and/or Lambda light chains. This value may not agree with the total protein as determined by chemical methods, which characteristically underestimate urinary light chains.
