It provides quantitative measure of intact immunoglobulins in patients thereby overcoming interpretation, sensitivity, co-migration and non-linearity issues with SPE and IFE.
Hevylite is a unique laboratory test which overcomes some of the problems found using electrophoresis methods.
Hevylite can help to:
It’s easy to use because:
It’s more accurate and sensitive than electrophoresis as Hevylite doesn’t suffer from issues like co-migration, fuzzy/diffuse bands, and dye saturation.
Like SPE, Hevylite measures the involved intact immunoglobulin e.g. IgAκ in a patient with IgAk Myeloma. It’s different because it measures the uninvolved immunoglobulin too e.g. IgAλ.
