Profile: Kent Laboratories, Inc. specializes in the production of polyclonal antibodies, radial immunodiffusion kits, and fluoroscein conjugated immunoglobulin fractions for manufacturers, universities & laboratories. We also produce peroxidase conjugated antibodies and antisera to human proteins, immunoglobulins and fractions, complement and apolipoproteins. Our products are used by researchers and clinical laboratories. We produce antiserum in goats, rabbits, sheep and burros using antigens purified from normal serum. It is solid phase adsorbed by affinity chromatography so that the final product has no soluble antigens, which can sometimes interfere with sensitive testing procedures. Each antiserum is tested for specificity and titer by immunoelectrophoresis, reverse radial immunodiffusion and ochterlony.

The company was founded in 1974, has revenues of < USD 1 Million, has ~10 employees.

• Anti-kappa Antiserum (FDA Code: DFH / 866.5550)
An immunoglobulin (light chain specific) immunological test system is a device that consists of the reagents used to measure by immunochemical techniques both kappa and lambda types of light chain portions of immunoglobulin molecules in serum, other body fluids, and tissues. In some disease states, an excess of light chains are produced by the antibody-forming cells. These free light chains, unassociated with gamma globulin molecules, can be found in a patient's body fluids and tissues. Measurement of the various amounts of the different types of light chains aids in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma (cancer of antibody-forming cells), lymphocytic neoplasms (cancer of lymphoid tissue), Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (increased production of large immunoglobulins), and connective tissue diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus erythematosus.

In some cancerous conditions, there is a proliferation of one plasma cell (antibody-producing cell) with excess production of light chains of one specific kind (monoclonal light chains). These free homogeneous light chains not associated with an immunoglobulin molecule can be found in urine and plasma, and have been called Bence-Jones proteins. Measurement of Bence-Jones proteins and determination that they are monoclonal aid in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma (malignant proliferation of plasma cells), Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (increased production of large immunoglobulins by spleen and bone marrow cells), leukemia (cancer of the blood-forming organs), and lymphoma (cancer of the lymphoid tissue).
