immunofixation serum high beta
A 38-year-old male asked:
Slightly elevated beta fraction from serum protein electrophoresis. Beta 1.07 (high) (0.52-0.98) increased beta fraction, no monoclonal or polyclonal gammopathy seen. Immunofixation normal.

A 47-year-old male asked:
Serum protein electrophoresis showed elevated beta-2 globulin, 5.3 g/L (reference range 2.0-5.0 g/L). What further testing could be done to rule out multiple myeloma, aside from immunofixation and quantitative immunoglobin?
A 52-year-old female asked:
High KAPPA/LAMBDA LIGHT CHAIN/slightly high ratio.No Monoclonal protein immunofixation or serum electrophoresis. Is this a type of cancer?Normal WBC
A 35-year-old male asked:
Serum free light chain test shows normal kappa (8.7mg/dl), low lambda (3.80), high kap/lam ratio (2.31). Serum $ urine electrophoresis show no monoclonal protein, nor does serum immunofixation. Likely MGUS, myeloma, or admyloidosis? CBC/met panel ok.
A 39-year-old male asked:
Serum free light chains increased ratio normal. lambda immunofixation with 4% m spike in beta 2 region in urine only. recommended next step 4 anemia?
A 45-year-old female asked:
Immunofixation, Serum FAH = Monoclonal IgG kappa immunoglobulin. Beta FAH = 10.5% Abnormal band, immunofixation to follow. I'm IgA deficient too. ??
A member asked:
Is a serum immunofixation test focused on monoclonal immunoglobulins but can also detect polyclonal ones or just the former? Thanks.
A 61-year-old female asked:
I had serum immunofixation. Scared.no monoclonol proteins. But read'"faint igg. Lambda. Cannot be excluded?
A 48-year-old female asked:
What would be the diagnosis for slightly above nomal range serum Img M, normal Img A & G. SPE Electrophoresis pattern revealing possible abnormality. Protein test: Normal levels. Serum immunofixation: No paraprotein, no bands. normal pattern? Thanks
A 40-year-old male asked:
Will the serum protein electrophoresis test tell me anything that the immunofixation test would not tell me?

Yes.: The ife is very sensitive at finding an abnormal antibody (monoclonal antibody) in blood, but it does not measure the quantity. The spep is less sens ... Read More
