Protein, Total And Protein Electrophoresis W/ Refl

The Protein, Total And Protein Electrophoresis W/ Refl test contains 1 test with 11 biomarkers.

IMPORTANT - If abnormal banding is detected and reflex to IFE occurs, the lab will add and charge for Immunofixation (IFE), Serum #549 for $61.

Protein electrophoresis is a test that measures specific proteins in the blood. The test separates proteins in the blood based on their electrical charge. The protein electrophoresis test is often used to find abnormal substances called M proteins.

Albumin is a protein made by the liver. A serum albumin test measures the amount of this protein in the clear liquid portion of the blood.





Gamma Globulins


Protein, Total

The total protein is the total amount of two classes of proteins, albumin and globulin that are found in the fluid portion of your blood. Proteins are important parts of all cells and tissues. Your albumin helps prevent fluid from leaking out of blood vessels and your globulins are an important part of your immune system.
