Refer to report.

Specimen analysis performed at ARUP Laboratories. NMR LDL Particle Number and LDL Cholesterol calculation are interpreted by ARUP. All other NMR test components are interpreted by LipoScience, Inc., Raleigh, NC. Analysis of total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides are performed using chemical methods.

Compliance Statement B: This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions.
