the Alere Cholestech LDX System
physicians can test patients for Total Cholesterol,
HDL, Triglycerides, LDL, Glucose, review test
results, and provide counsel on therapeutic
options - all in the same office visit.
Cholestech's LDX System uses a single drop of
blood on a disposable test cassette and takes just
five minutes to generate a lab-accurate, comprehensive
measurement of a patient's cholesterol levels.
The speed and ease of the LDX System enables doctors
to counsel patients at the time of the test - a tremendous
therapeutic advantage over traditional lab testing
and a more convenient option for patients.
measure a patient's full lipid profile (total cholesterol,
HDL, LDL, triglycerides, blood glucose). These simple
tests can be used to determine a patient's risk for
heart disease or to regularly monitor patients already
undergoing treatment for these conditions.
System consists of a small analyzer that uses
disposable test cassettes. The LDX is "CLIA-waived"
under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments
of 1988 and CRMLN Certified. The system is simple
to use, requires little training and is as reliably
accurate as those tests offered in a lab. In
most cases, Medicare and third-party health insurance
reimburse the costs of the LDX System tests.
