Monoclonal Protein Study, Serum
NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.
Diagnosis of monoclonal gammopathies, when used in conjunction with urine monoclonal studies
Monitoring patients with monoclonal gammopathies
Protein electrophoresis alone is not considered an adequate screen for monoclonal gammopathies
Profile Information A profile is a group of laboratory tests that are ordered and performed together under a single Mayo Test ID. Profile information lists the test performed, inclusive of the test fee, when a profile is ordered and includes reporting names and individual availability.
