The request form should include patient's age and clinical diagnosis.
2 - 5 days
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
30-mL aliquot of random urine
11-mL aliquot of random urine
12-mL plastic transport tube (LabCorp N° 23597) without preservative
Collect first morning urine; mix well.
Characterize the species of protein or proteins in cases of proteinuria. Techniques can identify albumin, γ-globulin, γ-globulin fragments (light chains, Bence Jones proteins); of value in the study of monoclonal gammopathies, lymphoproliferative diseases, including lymphoma; special application to multiple myeloma, macroglobulinemia of Waldenström, and amyloidosis; work up monoclonal gammopathy (M-spike)
Urine immunofixation (IFE) on agarose gel; urine protein electrophoresis on agarose media; visual light-chain typing
