High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C)
High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) Test Kit
In vitro test for the quantitative determination of HDL-Cholesterol (HDL-C) concentration in serum on photometric systems.HDL cholesterol is inversely related to the risk of developing coronary artery disease. A low HDL/LDL cholesterol ratio is directly related to the risk of developing coronary artery disease. A high HDL cholesterol is associated with the "longevity" syndrome.
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 HDL-cholesterol concentration.
