Randox Laboratories are at the forefront of pioneering diagnostics, and as such have produced an assay for the automated detection of small-dense LDL (sLDL), the first of its kind on the market. Traditionally, ultracentrifugation and electrophoresis-based methods have been used for the measurement of sLDL but these methods are both laborious and time-consuming. Randox offers a superior “Denka Seiken” method for sLDL testing – a direct method that produces results in ten minutes, and designed for use on automated chemistry analysers.
Research has shown individuals with a predominance of sLDL have a 3-fold increased risk of myocardial infarction (MI). Elevated levels of sLDL are associated with a sedentary lifestyle, a diet high in saturated fat, insulin resistance, pre-diabetes and genetic disposition.
