Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Lipoprotein Particle Testing Using LipoScience Vantera® Clinical Analyzer Now Performed at Mayo Medical Laboratories
Mayo Medical Laboratories is now performing NMR lipoprotein particle testing using the LipoScience, Inc. Vantera® Analyzer, which identifies and quantifies concentrations of lipoproteins using NMR spectroscopy and proprietary signal processing algorithms.
The Analyzer can identify and quantify concentrations of lipoproteins using NMR spectroscopy and proprietary signal processing algorithms. This analysis provides physicians and patients with a detailed assessment of cardiovascular disease risk from a single blood test that measures the concentration of low-density lipoprotein particles (LDL-P) and other lipoprotein information.
Adoption and decentralization of the Vantera Clinical Analyzer into clinical laboratories will ultimately provide widespread access to the NMR LipoProfile test, reduce sample processing turnaround time and provide value to physicians focused on delivering quality patient care and personalized management of cardiovascular disease.
