Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of HDL Cholesterol in serum and plasma. Such measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of lipid disorders (such as diabetes mellitus), atherosclerosis and various other liver and renal diseases, and for the assessment for the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

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.

An inverse relationship between HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) levels in serum and the incidence/prevalence of coronary heart disease (CHD) has been demonstrated in a number of epidemiological studies. The importance of HDL-C as a risk factor for CHD is now recognised (1).

Accurate measurement of HDL-C is of vital importance when assessing patient risk from CHD. In this diagnostic test kit a method for direct measurement of HDL-C, without sample pre-treatment, is presented. Direct measurement gives improved accuracy and reproducibility when compared to precipitation methods.
