Intended Use

Beckman Coulter OSR6195, Olympus HDL Cholesterol Reagent for the quantitative determination of HDL Cholesterol concentrations in human serum and plasma on Beckman Coulter AU analyzers.

Beckman Coulter OSR6195 Olympus HDL Cholesterol Reagent (hdl reagent) for HDL Cholesterol Test :

HDL-C, also known as High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol, plays a crucial role in reducing the risk of coronary artery disease by transporting cholesterol from peripheral tissues to the liver (reverse cholesterol transport), which helps prevent the formation of atheromatous plaques.

According to guidelines from The National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel 2 (NCEP ATP 2), it’s recommended to measure both HDL-Cholesterol and Total Cholesterol during initial screening for high cholesterol. In 2001, NCEP increased the threshold for high-risk medical decisions to HDL-C levels below 40 mg/dL.

Beckman Coulter OSR6195 Olympus HDL Cholesterol Reagent (hdl reagent) for HDL Cholesterol Test and HDL-C Levels:

< 40 mg/dL: Indicates a major risk factor for Coronary Heart Disease.
60 mg/dL: Considered a negative risk factor for Coronary Heart Disease.

Beckman Coulter OSR6195 Olympus HDL Cholesterol Reagent (hdl reagent) for HDL Cholesterol Test  Methodology:

The HDL-Cholesterol test is a two-reagent system designed to selectively measure HDL-Cholesterol in serum or plasma while excluding other lipoprotein particles. The test consists of two phases:

Free cholesterol in non-HDL lipoproteins is solubilized and consumed, resulting in a colorless end product.
A unique detergent selectively solubilizes HDL lipoproteins, allowing HDL cholesterol to react with cholesterol esterase, cholesterol oxidase, and a chromogen system, producing a blue color complex. This complex is measurable at 600/700nm, and the increase in absorbance directly corresponds to the HDL-C concentration in the sample.

What is a Cholesterol Test?

An HDL lcholesterol test is a blood test that measures the amount of cholesterol and certain fats in your blood. Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that’s found in your blood and every cell of your body. You need some cholesterol to keep your cells and organs healthy.

Your liver makes all the cholesterol your body needs. But you can also get cholesterol from the foods you eat, especially meat, eggs, poultry, and dairy products. Foods that are high in dietary fat can also make your liver produce more cholesterol.

There are two main types of cholesterol: low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad” cholesterol, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL-Cholesterol), or “good” cholesterol.

Too much LDL cholesterol in your blood increases your risk for coronary artery disease and other heart diseases. High LDL levels can cause the buildup of a sticky substance called plaque in your arteries. Over time, plaque can narrow your arteries or fully block them. When this happens, parts of your body don’t get enough blood:

  • 1.If the blood flow to the heart is blocked, it can cause a heart attack.
  • 2.If the blood flow to the brain is blocked, it can cause a stroke.
  • 3.If the blood flow to the arms or legs is blocked, it can cause peripheral artery disease.

Other names for a cholesterol test: Lipid profile, Lipid panel

What is HDL Cholesterol test is used for?

A cholesterol test gives you and your health care provider important information about your risk of developing heart disease. If your test shows you have high cholesterol, you can take steps to lower it. This may decrease your risk of developing heart problems in the future. A cholesterol test measures:

  • LDL cholesterol levels. Also known as the “bad” cholesterol, LDL is the main source of blockages in the arteries.
  • HDL-cholesterol levels. Considered the “good” cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol helps get rid of “bad” LDL cholesterol.
  • Total cholesterol. The combined amount of LDL cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol in your blood.
  • Triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are a type of fat found in your blood. Some studies show that high levels of triglycerides may increase the risk of heart disease, especially in women.
  • VLDL levels. Very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) is another type of “bad” cholesterol. High VLDL levels have been linked to plaque buildup in the arteries. VLDL isn’t usually included in routine cholesterol tests because it’s difficult to measure. About half of VLDL is triglycerides, so your VLDL level can be estimated as a percentage of your triglyceride level.
