Test ID: MALDO    
M-Protein Isotype, Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption-Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry, Serum

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Aiding in the diagnosis of monoclonal gammopathies, when used in conjunction with free light chain studies

 

This test alone is not considered an adequate screen for monoclonal gammopathies.

Reflex Tests Lists tests that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial tests.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

This test includes M-protein isotyping. If a light chain is identified without a corresponding heavy chain during initial testing, immunofixation with IgD and IgE antisera will be performed at an additional charge.
