Test for the quantitative determination of cholesterol in blood, serum or plasma with Reflotron systems.
Cholesterol is a steroid with a secondary hydroxyl group in the C3 position. It is synthesized in many tissues, but particularly
in the liver and the wall of the intestine. About three quarters of the body’s cholesterol is synthesized by the tissues while
one quarter comes from the diet.
Determination of cholesterol is used to screen for an atherogenic risk and in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases with
elevated cholesterol levels and disorders of lipid and lipoprotein metabolism.
