Drug Screen Test Kit


Product Overview:
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 lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, blood glucose) and ALT (alanine aminotranferase) - a test that assesses liver function in patients on certain drug therapies, such as statins.  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.  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.
