The quantitation of heavy and light chain pairs is useful for:
1. Distinguishing between broadly migrating monoclonal proteins and restricted polyclonal immunoglobulin responses
2. Quantitating monoclonal IgM proteins that are difficult to quantitate on serum protein electrophoresis
3. Providing a more specific quantitation of the monoclonal protein than quantitating total IgM
Includes total immunoglobulin M.
