Clia Waived

The Cholestech LDX® System is designed to combat America’s number one killer, heart disease. More than 1.25 million Americans suffer heart attacks every year, and the cost to the economy is staggering - more than $50 billion annually. With early detection and proper preventive care, much of this can be avoided.

Using patented, innovative technology, Cholestech LDX® System measures the levels of TC, HDL and triglycerides, calculates the TC/HDL ratio and estimates of LDL and VLDL. And the scope of its measurement capabilities is not the only advantage to healthcare providers. The physician, nurse or technician can now share the results of testing with the patient on the spot, which means that action can be taken and treatment can begin immediately.
