Clinical Information:
Abnormalities detected on serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP) should be immunotyped to confirm and characterize the monoclonal protein. Immunotyping of monoclonal proteins is usually done by immunofixation electrophoresis (IFE) and identifies the monoclonal immunoglobulin heavy-chain (gamma, alpha, mu, delta, or epsilon) and/or light-chain type (kappa or lambda). It is generally recommended that both SPEP and IFE be used as a screening panel. Because IFE is more sensitive than SPEP, IFE is not only recommended as part of the initial screening process but also for confirmation of complete response to therapy.
 
Reference Value:
No monoclonal gammopathy was detected
 
Interpretation:
Class and type of found abnormal immunoglobulin will be reported
