Colorimetric Urine Protein, High Resolution Agarose Electrophoresis
To follow therapy in light chain monoclonal gammopathies.
Negative for Bence Jones protein and negative for intact monoclonal protein. Pathologist interpretation of results provided.
- BJ QUANT RESULT
- Light Chain Quantitation
- Urine Light Chain Quantitation
- BJ QUANT
- BJ QUANT CALCULATED RESULT
- Immunofixation (IFIX), Urine (if negative)
Collect 24 hour urine specimen with no preservative. Aliquot 10 mL into a plastic urine container or BD yellow top urine tube and refrigerate up to 1 week. Record total 24 hour urine volume and collection dates/times on request form.
Test includes pathologist interpretation of results billed as a separate additional charge. This test is not available without interpretation. If present, quantitation and identification of albumin, intact monoclonal protein and Bence Jones protein are reported in g/24 hours. If Bence Jones protein is not present, the report will read 0.0 g/24 hours with a footnote: "Negative for Bence Jones protein". The laboratory will perform a Bence Jones protein screen (urine immunofixation) to aid in the identification and quantitation process.
