A cryoglobulin is a serum protein that precipitates at temperatures lower than body temperature (37C). Most cryoglobulins are polyclonal immunoglobulin complexes, but nearly half are monoclonal, usually IgM. Amyloid disease is characterized by deposits of insoluble fibrillar protein complexes in various tissues.

All specimens should be obtained aseptically by venipuncture. Patients
must be fasting for cryoglobulin testing. Collect the blood specimen
in a pre-warmed (37 C) vacutainer tube (plain or red-top
for serum). Immediately after collection, continuously maintain
vacutainer tubes at 37 C for 1 hour, followed by
centrifugation maintaining 37 C. Transfer the sample
into a plastic vial labeled as serum. Once separated from clot or
cells, sample is sent ambient.
