Use: The globulin test measures the amounts of alpha, beta and gamma globulins in the blood and is used for the diagnosis of blood diseases such as Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia or multiple myeloma, acute infections or chronic inflammatory conditions.
Additional Information: There are two major groups of proteins in the blood, albumin and globulins. Globulins can be divided into 4 classes: alpha-1, which contains HDL; alpha-2, which contains haptoglobin; beta, which helps fight infections and carry substances through the blood; and gamma, which are the antibodies.
