The VAP™ cholesterol test is a comprehensive lipoprotein analysis. It provides a direct measurement of total cholesterol, LDL-C, HDL-C, VLDL-C, Lp(a), and triglycerides. Additional reported information includes the qualitative assessment of LDL particle size, HDL subfractions (HDL2-C and HDL3-C), and VLDL subfractions (VLDL 1+2-C, VLDL3-C, and IDL-C). The VAP™ cholesterol test is in compliance with current NCEP ATP III recommendations, and the additional information provided (beyond conventional lipoprotein profiles) relates to emerging risk factors and the metabolic syndrome as recognized in the report.
