Immunotherapies for Multiple Myeloma, like the monoclonal antibody daratumumab, can create false positive IgG Kappa bands on Immunofixation gels. This paper describes best practice guidelines for using the Hydrashift assay to remove daratumumab interference from Immunofixation gels.
Hemoglobin C, D Punjab, E or S trait can interfere with hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) results depending on the method of analysis used. Therefore, it is important to know the limitations of the method used for HbA1c determination.
This article reminds the reader of the importance of detecting the Hb variants when measuring HbA1c for the labs and clinicians to better interpret the results and to ensure optimal management of the diabetic patient.
The EurA1c trial, organized yearly, investigates the performance of HbA1c assays across countries and manufacturers.
