OBJECTIVES To assess the relative value of visual inspection of protein electrophoresis patterns, immunoelectrophoresis, immunofixation, and specific protein quantitation in the investigation of serum proteins. DESIGN AND METHODS A retrospective study of protein results on 372 sera analyzed by electrophoresis and immunoelectrophoresis. A subsection of specimens (276) also had immunoglobulin quantitation by immunonephelometry and 30 were studied by immunofixation. RESULTS Total gamma… CONTINUE READING
