Mayo Clinic has been on the forefront of patient-centered and value-based laboratory testing with a comprehensive offering of test profiles and an algorithmic approach to multiple myeloma testing. We have continued this commitment to patient care with the recent updates to our protein electrophoresis and monoclonal gammopathy test offerings as new mass spectrometry approaches have been developed to identify monoclonal proteins using high-resolution molecular mass measurements that achieve superior sensitivity compared to traditional methods.
David Murray, M.D., Ph.D., provides an overview of the updated monoclonal gammopathy screening and monitoring tests for multiple myeloma. He discusses when this testing should be ordered, how this approach improves upon previous methods, and what clinical action can be taken from the results of these tests.
