Immunophenotyping by Flow Cytometry Kappa and Lambda Light Chains Test is a sophisticated diagnostic procedure performed at DNA Labs UAE, aimed at analyzing specific proteins or markers on the surface of cells. This test is particularly crucial in the diagnosis and monitoring of various blood cancers, such as lymphoma and leukemia. By examining the kappa and lambda light chains—integral components of antibodies—this test helps in identifying abnormal cell populations and understanding their characteristics.

Flow cytometry is a technology that allows for the detailed analysis of multiple physical characteristics of thousands of particles per second as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light. The kappa and lambda light chains test is an essential part of this process, as it provides insights into the clonality and immunophenotype of cells, which are vital for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

The cost of the Immunophenotyping by Flow Cytometry Kappa and Lambda Light Chains Test at DNA Labs UAE is 910 AED. This investment is crucial for patients requiring detailed analysis of their condition, offering them a pathway to targeted and effective treatment options based on the specific characteristics of their disease. DNA Labs UAE, with its state-of-the-art facilities and experienced professionals, ensures precise and reliable test results, making it a trusted choice for patients and healthcare providers seeking comprehensive diagnostic solutions.

IMMUNOPHENOTYPING BY FLOW CYTOMETRY KAPPA and LAMBDA LIGHT CHAINS Test

Test Cost: AED 910.0

Introduction

Immunophenotyping by flow cytometry is a laboratory test that analyzes and identifies different types of cells in a sample, such as blood or tissue, based on the expression of specific proteins on their surface. The Kappa and Lambda light chains test is a specific type of immunophenotyping test that focuses on the analysis of Kappa and Lambda light chains, which are components of immunoglobulins (antibodies) produced by B cells.

Test Components

  • Sample Condition: 3 mL (2 mL min.) whole blood in 1 Lavender Top (EDTA) tube AND 3 mL (2 mL min.) whole blood in 1 Green Top (Sodium Heparin) tube OR 2 mL (1 mL min.) Bone marrow in 1 Green Top (Sodium heparin) tube. Ship immediately at 18-22°C. DO NOT REFRIGERATE OR FREEZE. Specify time, date, and clinical details on the test request form.

Pre Test Information

Give brief clinical history.

Test Details

The Kappa and Lambda light chains test aims to determine the ratio of Kappa to Lambda light chains in B cells, helping to diagnose and monitor diseases such as lymphomas or multiple myeloma. Abnormal results in the Kappa and Lambda light chains test may indicate a clonal expansion of B cells, which can be indicative of a lymphoma or multiple myeloma. Further diagnostic tests, such as bone marrow biopsy or genetic analysis, may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis and determine the specific subtype of the disease.

Test Details

Immunophenotyping by flow cytometry is a laboratory test that is used to analyze and identify different types of cells in a sample, such as blood or tissue, based on the expression of specific proteins on their surface.

The Kappa and Lambda light chains test is a specific type of immunophenotyping test that focuses on the analysis of Kappa and Lambda light chains, which are components of immunoglobulins (antibodies) produced by B cells.

In normal conditions, B cells produce immunoglobulins with a balanced ratio of Kappa and Lambda light chains. However, in certain diseases, such as lymphomas or multiple myeloma, this balance can be disrupted, leading to an overproduction or underproduction of one of the light chains.

The Kappa and Lambda light chains test aims to determine the ratio of Kappa to Lambda light chains in B cells, helping to diagnose and monitor these diseases. The test involves staining the cells with fluorescently-labeled antibodies specific to Kappa and Lambda light chains, and then analyzing them using flow cytometry. By comparing the fluorescence intensity of Kappa and Lambda, the test can determine the ratio of these light chains in the cells.

Abnormal results in the Kappa and Lambda light chains test may indicate a clonal expansion of B cells, which can be indicative of a lymphoma or multiple myeloma. Further diagnostic tests, such as bone marrow biopsy or genetic analysis, may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis and determine the specific subtype of the disease.
