11 Oct 2021

SelectScience® hosts dozens of informative and insightful free webinars for scientists every month, featuring world-class speakers at the very forefront of their respective fields. In this regular feature, we highlight the events you won't want to miss over the next week or so, as well as some of our top on-demand webinars.

Register now to save your spot and hear from experts as they discuss the latest research, techniques and technologies in their fields, from novel 3D imaging platforms and cell line development to comparing the performance of immunotyping and immunofixation, internal clinical quality control practices, and more. 


CLINICAL PATHOLOGY: Performance of immunotyping (IT) versus immunofixation (IF) for the detection of monoclonal gammopathies

In this webinar, Dr. Katie Thoren will discuss a recent study comparing the performance of immunotyping and immunofixation for the detection of M-proteins. Thoren will demonstrate that reviewer training and experience are critical to the correct interpretation of IT results and that the analytical and clinical sensitivity is similar to IF for the detection of M-proteins.
