Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C)
Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) Test Kit
In vitro test for the quantitative determination of LDL-Cholesterol (LDL-C) concentration in serum and plasma on photometric systems. LDL-Cholesterol is directly related to the risk of developing coronary heart disease. A low HDL/LDL-Cholesterol ratio is directly related to the risk of developing coronary artery disease. Elevated LDL-Cholesterol is the primary target of cholesterol-lowering therapy.
The System monitors the change in absorbance at 546nm. This change in absorbance is directly proportional to the concentration of cholesterol in the sample and is used by the System to calculate and express the LDL-cholesterol concentration.
