Bence Jones Protein
Rapid CDIATM Bence Jones Protein kits are intended to detect the light-chains specific free κ/λ in urine.
The presence of light-chains specific free κ/λ in urine may be an indication of a mono-or polyclonal gammapathy. This pathology, called Bences Jones Proteinuria, is characterized by the indiscriminate proliferation of B-cell lymphocytes which are detectable in the urine as free κ and λ proteins. The pathology is associated with Multiple Myeloma, Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia, monoclonal light chain amiloidosis, and light chain deposition disease.
