New reagent for direct determination of LDL-cholesterol

LDL-c direct FS, a new homogeneous assay for the direct determination of LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) is one of the latest products in the DiaSys portfolio. LDL-C is used as part of the lipid panel to estimate the risk of developing heart disease and to guide and monitor lipid-lowering therapies. Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease starts early in life, often during childhood without symptoms and signs. Studies revealed that 71% and 43% of middle-aged men and women, respectively, show evidence of subclinical atherosclerosis. Evidence from epidemiologic, genetic, and clinical intervention studies have clearly demonstrated that low-density lipoprotein is causal in this process.
LDL-c direct FS is characterized by a wide measuring range and shows good overall precision at clinical cut-off points. The ready-to-use reagent may be applied on all automated clinical chemical analyzers and shows good comparability with commercially available methods for the determination of LDL-cholesterol.
