Simultaneous HDL/LDL/Total Lipoprotein Single Tube Homogeneous Assay

Available for licensing is an invention in which a single tube assay is used for determining high-density lipoprotein HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C), low density lipoprotein (LDL-C) and total cholesterol (total-C), from a single serum sample. This assay is an efficient tool for use in determining patient risk factors for heart disease. Previously, multiple costly tests were performed in order to determine low-density lipoprotein LDL-C and HDL-C by measuring total-C, total triglyceride, and HDL-C. That method of testing had limitations and was complex. Using this methodology, the homogeneous assay for HDL-C does not require physically separating HDL. The new assay developed is efficient, less costly, and compares favorably to current assays for HDL-C, total cholesterol, and triglyceride. This technology may also be used to simplify the procedure for the point of care testing of hyperlipidemia.
