This is the most common Lipid Panel. Components include those useful in the detection, classification, and monitoring of patients with hyperlipidemia.

Patient Preparation:
Fasting
Fasting is not required prior to collection of a lipid panel.

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
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.


Centrifuge within 30-60 minutes following collection.
