The authors of November's Clinical Case Study provided us with three exclusive questions that will not appear in the published version of the Case. We'd love to hear your answers to these questions in the comments section!

1) Describe some key laboratory tests used to confirm the diagnosis of multiple myeloma.

2) High concentrations of paraproteins may result in a highly viscous sample. How should viscous samples be handled to ensure accurate results? 

3) What types of analytical errors are frequently associated with test methodologies employing ion selective electrodes?
