Product Details

Cell Biolabs’ HDL and LDL/VLDL Cholesterol Assay Kit measures the cholesterol levels of HDL and LDL/VLDL fractions in serum or plasma. The assay will detect total cholesterol (cholesteryl esters plus free cholesterol) in the presence of cholesterol esterase or only free cholesterol in the absence of the esterase enzyme.

Assay Principle for the Total Cholesterol Assay (Fluorometric).

Cholesterol Standard Curve.
