30 October 2014 (Thursday) - Myeloma Case Study

An interesting article with cross-discipline aspects to be considered. This case illustrates how very high immunoglobulin levels can ccause interferences in many test results including
  • the prozone effect
  • the volume displacement effect
  • precipitation interference.
We need to bear in mind potential sources of discrepant results in patients with high plasma protein concentrations and should take care to prevent the release of erroneous results.
It's not all about just churning out whatever number the analyser produces...
