Term Description

When one or more monoclonal (M) bands are found, laboratories will often label them as M, Band 2, Band 3, etc. This term is used to report the percent of that part of M.

Part Descriptions

LP30793-1   Protein.monoclonal
A monoclonal band (M-spike, monoclonal protein isotype) is often found in patients with monoclonal gammopathies. Following protein electrophoresis, immunofixation is used to identify the immunoglobulin heavy chain and/or light chain. Monoclonal peaks greater than 3 g/dL and IgG or IgA are seen in patients with Multiple Myeloma (MM). A monoclonal peak greater than 3 g/dL and IgM is seen in patients with macroglobulinemia. An alternate methodology for identifying the monoclonal protein isotype is MALDI-TOF, in which known information regarding the unique mass of each isotype is used to determine and quantify the isotype present in the patient sample based on the mass spectra generated from the sample.

Serum total protein, also called plasma total protein or total protein, is a biochemical test for measuring the total amount of protein in blood plasma or serum.

Protein in the plasma is made up of albumin and globulin. The globulin in turn is made up of α1, α2, β, and γ globulins. These fractions can be quantitated using protein electrophoresis, but the total protein test is a faster and cheaper test that estimates the total of all fractions together. The traditional method for measuring total protein uses the biuret reagent, but other chemical methods such as Kjeldahl method, dye-binding and refractometry are now available. The measurement is usually performed on automated analysers along with other laboratory tests. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.
