Amyloidosis is a disorder in which abnormal proteins build up in tissues and organs. Clumps of the abnormal proteins, called amyloid deposits, can build up in certain organs, reducing their ability to work correctly. Definitive diagnosis is made by a biopsy examination for evidence of characteristic amyloid deposits, but treatment strategies are often determined by the additional information gained by protein subtyping. View this presentation and find out why LC-MS protein identification may be the answer to the significant challenges posed by antibody-based investigations.

Testing for low-density lipoprotein cholesterol can help determine an individual's risk of heart disease and help guide decisions about what treatment may be best if the person is at borderline or high risk. The results are considered along with other known risk factors of heart disease to develop a plan of treatment and follow up. Treatment options may involve lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, or lipid-lowering medications such as statins.

Although mass spec has been used in the clinical lab for decades, it has mainly focused on specialized testing such as newborn screening and metabolic disorders. As a result, clinical laboratorians and pathologists have had limited access to this essential method. This webcast highlights the latest developments in LC/MS technology designed to make mass spec testing accessible for clinical laboratories of all sizes and volumes.
