Abstract:Serum protein electrophoresis (SPE) is a useful technique to separate various serum pro-teins based on their electrical charges and molecular weight. Normally gamma region is characterized by a polyclonal broad band. In Plasma cell dyscrasia we find single monoclonal prominent band. Two distinct bands in this region are quite rare. Here we present such an interesting case. .
Key words: Serum protein electrophoresis, SPE, Multiple myeloma, monoclonal gammopathy, bi-clonal gammopathy, di-clonal gammopathy
