Evaluation of an automated method for measuring low-density lipoprotein cholesterol



Evaluation of an automated method for measuring low-density lipoprotein cholesterol



Annales de Biologie Clinique 62(6): 691-694



We evaluated an automated method for measuring low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-cholesterol) with Integra 800 (Roche Diagnostics). This method uses detergents which show selectivity for the different lipoproteins. Our evaluation has shown a within run imprecision of 2% and a between-assay imprecision of 1.2%. This method was not perturbed by haemoglobin, bilirubin or lipids. However, the reagents remain expensive: we will use it when calculation or interpretation of lipid results are not possible.
