ST. LOUIS , MO  Lee Biosolutions Inc, an international manufacturer, producer and supplier of high purity finished proteins and antigens announces  increased production of  beta 2 MICROGLOBULIN .   The St. Louis-based  healthcare- biotechnology firm has  developed a unique  proprietary process to effectively and efficiently purify  B2M in bulk.  As a result, Lee is now is a preferred producer for researchers and  diagnostic companies to supply  this critical tumor marker for multiple myelomas and lymphomas.

Beta 2 MICROGLOBULIN is an important blood plasma protein used for detecting some blood cell cancers as lymphomas and multiple myelomas and for detecting kidney damage. B2M is used for prognosis because it is found on the surface of many cells, including lymphocytes, and in small amounts in the blood and urine. According to the CDC, there are over 10,000 deaths of multiple myeloma per year and over 20,000 people dying from lymphoma just in the United States alone. Lymphoma is the most common form of blood cancer in the developed world.

“ We feel that Lee Biosolutions is on the forefront of Blood Cell Cancer research  by supplying  highly purified  markers such as Beta 2 Microglobulin to the research community and clinical diagnostic market.  A B2M Test measures the level of B2M in the blood  or urine and is one of the tools used  for identifying disease activity and tumor burden.  With continued  improvements in screening, diagnosis and treatment of blood cancers and kidney damage  more individuals are able to manage their disease earlier and live longer .”  said Burton Lee, President of Lee Biosolutions.
