Screening and diagnosis of monoclonal gammopathies including analysis of free light chains

 

Assessing the risk of progression from monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance to multiple myeloma

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.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

This test includes total protein, serum protein electrophoresis, heavy and light chain typing (kappa and lambda), and quantitation of kappa and lambda free light chains.

 

If a light chain is identified without a corresponding heavy chain during initial testing, immunofixation with IgD and IgE antisera will be performed at an additional charge.
