Kappa Light Chain

Company :


Intended Use

This reagent is used for the invitro quantitative determination of Kappa Light Chain (KLC) inhuman serum by nephelometric immunoassay.
Nephelometry methodology Linear up to 800 mg/dL Ready to use reagents
No calibration required
Lower detection level 40 mg/dL

Clinical Significance

The determination of Kappa light chain in human serum is  important  for  the d iagnosis and sub typing of  monoclonal gammopathies. These help in  the   d ifferentiation of monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) and multiple myeloma (MM). Polyclonal immunoglobulins exhibit both Kappa and Lambda types of light chains in a roughly constant ratio of 2:1, whereas monoclonal immunoglobulins exhibit only one type of light chain. Increased production of monoclonal immunoglobulins or free monoclonal light chains leads to a Kappa/ Lambda quotient outside the reference range indicating the existence of a monoclonal gammopathy.
