Utilizing mass spectrometry to detect and isotype monoclonal proteins in urine: Comparison to electrophoretic methods.

Matrix assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight mass spectrometry coupled to immune enrichment (MASS-FIX) as an alternative to serum immunofixation electrophoresis has demonstrated increased sensitivity in monoclonal protein (MP) detection with improved laboratory workflow. This study explored similar replacement of urine immunofixation electrophoresis (u-IFE) with urine MASS-FIX (u-MASS-FIX) by method comparison.
