Description

Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of HDL Cholesterol in serum or plasma. This product is suitable for automated, semi-automated and manual use.

Clinical Significance

High-density lipoproteins (HDL) are one of the major classes of plasma lipoproteins. They are composed of a number of heterogeneous particles, including cholesterol and vary with respect to size and content of lipid and Apolipoprotein. HDL serves to remove cholesterol from the peripheral cells to the liver, where the cholesterol is converted to bile acids and excreted into the intestine.

 

Accurate measurement of HDL-C is of vital importance when assessing patient risk from CHD. Direct measurement gives improved accuracy and reproducibility when compared to precipitation methods.

 

HDL is usually requested with other tests, either with cholesterol or as part of a lipid profile, including LDL and triglycerides. The combination of total cholesterol and HDL is very useful for screening for the risk of heart disease.
