Description

SUMMARY, EXPLANATION AND LIMITATIONS:

Antibody to the kappa light chain of immunoglobulin is reportedly useful in the identification of leukemias, plasmacytomas, and certain non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas.  Demonstration of clonality in lymphoid infiltrates indicates that the infiltrate is clonal and therefore malignant.

Polyclonal

Isotype: IgG

Immunogen: Kappa light chains purified from human Bence Jones proteins.

Staining pattern: Cytoplasmic.

Positive control: Tissue sample from tonsil.

APPLICATIONS:

This antibody is designed for the specific localization of human kappa light chain using IHC techniques in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections.

Is useful for detecting monoclonality in B cell lymphoproliferative disorders, which provides significant support diagnosis of lymphoma versus lymphoid hyperplasia or other reactive lymphadenitis; as well as in leukemia and plasma cell, plasma cell dysplasias myelomas or plasmacytomas.
