LPAM2: ACN 8724
In vitro test for the quantitative determination of lipoprotein (a) in human serum and plasma on Roche/Hitachi cobas c systems. The measurement of Lp(a) is useful in evaluating lipid metabolism disorders and assessing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in specific populations, when used in conjunction with clinical evaluation and other lipoprotein tests.
