The Cholestech LDX® System is the efficient and economical point of care testing for cholesterol and related lipids, and blood glucose. This diagnostic tool provides information for immediate risk assessment and therapeutic monitoring of heart disease, inflammatory disorders and diabetes. Using patented, innovative technology, the LDX System measures a complete lipid profile plus glucose and ALT in only 5 minutes from a simple fingerstick. With the ALT test, you can get immediate liver function results.
The scope of its measurement capabilities is not the only advantage to healthcare providers. The physician, nurse or technician can now share the results of testing with the patient on the spot, which means that action can be taken and treatment can begin immediately.
