CAP Guidelines for Laboratory Detection and Initial Diagnosis of Monoclonal Gammopathies

Webinar Abstract:
This webinar describes methods that are recommended to standardize the detection and measurement of the monoclonal proteins in different laboratories. A monoclonal gammopathy is any disorder marked by proliferation of an abnormal clone (or clones) of a plasma cell or B cell in the bone marrow resulting in an abnormal increase of proteins in the blood serum and urine.
