    Components of Serum Protein Electrophoresis The pattern of serum protein electrophore-sis results depends on the fractions of two major types of protein: albumin and globu-lins. Albumin, the major protein component of serum, is produced by the liver under normal physiologic conditions. Globulins comprise a much smaller fraction of theFile Size: KB. Multiple Myeloma and Related Serum Protein Disorders is a practical guide to the clinical use of serum and urine electrophoresis and also includes coverage of immunofixation electrophoresis. These techniques are essential in the accurate identification of monoclonal gammopathies and the diagnosis of multiple myeloma and related Range: $ - $

    Immunofixation, Serum - Monoclonal increases in IgG or IgA are often associated with diseases such as multiple myeloma, lymphomas or leukemia. A monoclonal increase in IgM is commonly associated with Waldenström's macroglobulinemia. In this study the performance of capillary electrophoresis was compared with the cellulose acetate membrane electrophoresis and agarose gel immunofixation electrophoresis for serum proteins. The results of capillary electrophoresis and cellulose acetate membrane electrophoresis were good (r=∼) for protein fractions and A/G ratio Author: Yoshinori Uji, Hiroaki Okabe.

Serum protein electrophoresis & immunofixation by Didier Le Carrer Download PDF EPUB FB2

A serum immunofixation test can detect abnormal levels and types of Ig to help diagnose certain disorders. This test is called serum protein electrophoresis This protein enables red blood Author: Darla Burke.

Learn in-depth information on Protein Electrophoresis & Immunofixation Electrophoresis Tests, on why the laboratory test is performed, specimen collected, the significance of the results, and its use in diagnosing medical conditions. Serum protein electrophoresis is an inexpensive, easy-to-perform screening procedure for initial identification of monoclonal bands.

Monoclonal bands are usually seen in the γ zone but may be seen in proximity of the β band or, rarely, in the α 2 region. Blood Serum protein electrophoresis & immunofixation book collected in a tube with clot activator.

In Protein Electrophoresis: Methods and Protocols, contributions from experts in the field have been collected in order to provide practical guidelines to this complex study. Each chapter outlines a specific electrophoretic variant in detail so that laboratory scientists may perform a.

The book contains chapters devoted to the methods and rationale for high-resolution electrophoresis; interpretation of high-resolution electrophoresis patterns in serum, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid; the immunofixation technique; and strategies for diagnosing monoclonal gammopathies.

Text books solely focused on the discipline of electrophoresis testing can be difficult to find. Sebia is pleased to offer text books specifically related to serum and urine protein electrophoresis and immunofixation testing, as well as the diagnosis of hemoglobinopathies.

Protein electrophoresis is typically performed on serum (the fluid portion of blood), urine samples or, in certain circumstances, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).Serum is obtained by collecting a blood sample by inserting a needle into a vein.

Urine samples may either be collected as a random sample (not timed) or a hour urine is collected by a spinal tap (also known as lumbar puncture. Serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP or SPE) is a laboratory test that examines specific proteins in the blood called globulins.

The most common indications for a serum protein electrophoresis test are to diagnose or monitor multiple myeloma, a monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance (MGUS), or further investigate a discrepancy between a low albumin and a relatively high total : D   Serum protein electrophoresis is used to identify patients with multiple myeloma and other serum protein disorders.

Protein electrophoresis may be requested when a doctor is investigating symptoms that suggest multiple myeloma, such as bone pain, anaemia, tiredness, unexplained fractures and recurrent may also be used as a follow-up to other laboratory tests, such as an abnormal total protein and/or albumin level, elevated urine protein levels, elevated calcium levels, and low white or red.

: Serum Protein Electrophoresis & Immunofixation: Illustrated Interpretations (): Le Carrer, Didier: Books. Serum protein electrophoresis is a simple, affordable method of separating blood proteins based on electrical charge, size and shape.

In the blood serum there are two major categories of. Test Overview. The serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP) test measures specific proteins in the blood to help identify some diseases. Proteins are substances made up of smaller building blocks called amino ns carry a positive or a negative electrical charge, and they move in.

If the serum M-protein spike is to g per dL, it is important to perform nephelometry to quantify the immunoglobulins present and to obtain a hour urine collection for electrophoresis and immunofixation. If these examinations are normal, serum protein electrophoresis should be repeated in three to six.

Serum protein electrophoresis (e-lek-tro for-e-esis) or "SPEP" is a blood test. The test measures the amount of albumin (al-bew-min) and globulins (glah-bew-lins) in your blood. Albumin and globulins are types of protein. A small amount of your blood is put on a special plate.

An electric current is sent through the plate.Immunofixation Blood Test Results Explained The immunofixation blood test is used as a way to identify the presence of abnormal proteins. The process of this test, which is called “electrophoresis,” is also used to determine if there are normal proteins that should be present, but are not.
