Kappa + Lambda

SKU: 214ds. Categories: , , .

Kappa + Lambda antibody light chain counts and ratio may be useful in the identification of myelomas, plasmacytomas, and certain non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. The most common feature of these malignancies is the restricted expression of a single light chain class. In normal tissue, the Kappa: Lambda cell ratio is approximately 2:1. While Kappa and Lambda antibodies may be assessed on two separate tissues, the double stain antibody allows the investigator to simultaneously see both Kappa and Lambda on the same tissue section, allowing the end-user a more accurate and easier assessment of the Kappa: Lambda ratio.
