Answer

Answer

Immunofixation consists of an electrophoresis phase and a fixation phase. [1]  Serum or urine immunofixation negative for a monoclonal protein or a polyclonal pattern is considered to be normal. CSF immunofixation that does not reveal oligoclonal bands is also considered normal. A polyclonal immunoglobulin pattern in the serum or urine immunofixation is considered to be nonspecific.
