Light-scattering and light-transmission turbidimetric analysis for serum apolipoproteins A-I and B.
Automated immunonephelometric or turbidimetric analysis has two uses in the workup of monoclonal gammopathies in serum: (a) They are useful for determining whether the immunoglobulin classes, other than the monoclonal, are decreased.
The results reported in these studies were all obtained by turbidimetric analysis with the exception of the NHANES III where rate immunonephelometry was used most of the time (they changed from a radial immunoassay when automated methods were becoming more widely used).
