Patient Preparation:
If a Cholesterol measurement is to be performed along with
Triglycerides, but not part of a Lipid Panel, then the patient
should be fasting 9-12 hours prior to collection. If the Cholesterol
is ordered as part of a Lipid Panel, then a fasting sample is not
required.

The assay manufacturer Beckman Coulter advises: "N-Acetyl Cysteine
(NAC), when administered in therapeutic concentrations (for the
treatment of acetaminophen overdose), has been determined to
interfere with assays for cholesterol, uric acid" where "NAC
interference may lead to falsely low results." According to
Beckman Coulter, the NAC interference should be insignificant
by 12 hours after completion of the initial loading dose of an
IV infusion treatment regimen consisting of an initial loading
dose of 150 mg/kg administered over 1 hour, a second dose of
50 mg/kg administered over 4 hrs and a third dose of 100 mg/kg
administered over 16 hrs.
