According to the National Cholesterol Education Program, developed by the National Institute of Health (NIH), more than 200 million Americans (three out of every five) may be at risk for high cholesterol, a condition that is generally asymptomatic.

Cholesterol screening is a fast, simple and cost-effective component used to assess the risk of heart disease, the No. 1 killer of Americans.

Once screened, patients are often motivated to take action to improve their health.  In fact, according to a 2001 cholesterol screening survey, one-third of patients with total cholesterol levels over the recommended 200 mg/dl, sought more information about managing their cholesterol with their physician.

With 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.

Product Overview:

Alere 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.

The LDX System can 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.

The LDX 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.
