HDL-C L-Type Assay


HDL-C L-Type Assay is an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) test for the quantitative determination of High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) in serum.

HDL-C is an important tool used to assess the individual risk of developing coronary heart disease (CHD) since a strong negative relationship between HDL-C concentration and CHD was reported.

HDL-C L-Type Assay is a liquid type reagent that assays HDL-C in serum by blocking lipoproteins like LDL, VLDL and chylomicrons (immunoinhibition method) and subsequent enzymatic reactions.

Reagent 1, Reagent 2 and a calibrator are required for this assay.
OEM test components are available for this assay.

All reagents and calibrators are CE-certified according to Directive 98/79/EC on in vitro diagnostic medical devices.
