2885-2Protein [Mass/volume] in Serum or PlasmaActive

Term Description

Although there is a qualitative difference between total protein in plasma and serum, the QUANTITATIVE difference is small and probably not clinically significant, therefore, system of SER/PLAS is acceptable. The protein concentration that is reported in electrophoresis is the same as that reported routinely.

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.
