Status Information

This term with electrophoresis was created under the assumption that the electrophoresis test generated the measure, but it does not. The total protein used in the electrophoresis report is a routine total protein, so the term should really map to the routine serum protein 2885-2.
Map-To Long Common Name Mapping Guidance
2885-2 Protein [Mass/volume] in Serum or Plasma

Term Description

The quantiative difference in total protein between serum and plasma primarily reflects the amount of fibrinogen present. Because the fibrinogen is a small fraction of the total protein, that difference is probably not clinically significant and SER/PLAS is acceptable.

Part Description

LP15838-3   Protein
Protein testing is performed to evaluate and monitor liver and kidney function and to detect and diagnose early kidney damage and various other diseases. Elevated protein levels may also be due to an infection, medication, vigorous exercise, or emotional or physical stress. Body fluids contain many different proteins that serve diverse functions such as transport of nutrients, removal of toxins, control of metabolic processes, and defense against invaders. Testing for protein levels may be done as part of a routine physical, a pregnancy workup, in cased of a suspected UTI, as part of a hospital admission, or to evaluate kidney function.
