Diagnostic Performance of Quantitative [Kappa] and [Lambda] Free Light Chain Assays in Clinical Practice (Hematology) (Clinical Report)

A quantitative nephelometric assay for free light chains (FLCs) [1] has recently been introduced as a commercial test. The assay measures [kappa] and [lambda] light chains that circulate as light chain monomers or dimers and are not bound to immunoglobulin heavy chain. Quantification of the is and FLCs and calculation of the FLC [kappa]/[lambda] ratio […]
