Additional Sample for Reflex Oligoclonal Banding, Serum

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

Kappa free light chain analysis will be performed by nephelometry on all cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples. When the free light chain results are greater than 0.0600 mg/dL, then the oligoclonal banding tests will be performed at an additional charge.
