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

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

The assay manufacturer, Roche, notes that N-acetylcysteine, when
administered in high concentrations (such as for treatment of
acetaminophen overdose), can interfere with their assay for HDL
cholesterol, leading to falsely low results.

If a cholesterol measurement is to be performed along with other
lipid tests, the patient should fast 9-12 hours prior to
collection.
If an HDL measurement is to be performed along with
Triglycerides, the patient should be fasting 9-12 hours prior to
collection.

Patient Preparation

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 hr, a second dose of 50 mg/kg administered over 4
hrs and a third dose of 100 mg/kg administered over 16 hrs.
