The VAP+ Lipid Panel

  • Is the first comprehensive lipid profile to comply with guidelines (NCEP/ATP III, AACE, and ADA/ACC)
    • Guidelines recommend a comprehensive approach to risk stratification1-3
  • Is the test of choice for accurate, global cardiometabolic risk stratification and management
    • Provides comprehensive lipid analysis
    • Simultaneously and accurately measures cholesterol concentrations of all 5 lipoprotein classes and their subclasses in a non-fasting patient4
  • Clarifies risk and drives a personalized treatment approach based on 3 categories of residual cardiometabolic risk
    • Cholesterol - Directly measures LDL and HDL, providing accurate results in a non-fasting patient. Also measures subclasses including apoB, which reflects atherogenic load.
    • Triglycerides - Identifies triglyceride-rich disorders, including non-HDL, even in patients with seemingly normal triglyceride levels.
    • Heredity - Identifies Lp(a), a hereditary marker of risk.

"Using the detailed lipid profiles in the VAP Cholesterol Test, we can identify atherosclerosis risk that goes far beyond the capabilities of the standard lipid profile. A cholesterol test which identifies the complete lipid picture can complement lipid risk identification and targeted lipid treatment in our clinical practices."
