HDL is the vehicle for reversed cholesterol transport and estrification, serving as a scavenger for free cholesterol during intravascular catabolism of lipoproteins. HDL levels are inversely correlated with coronary heart disease. In a normal fasting individual, HDL concentrations range from 1.0-2.0 g/L.

Purity: Single arc by IEP against antisera to whole human serum. Essentially free of other plasma lipoproteins and chylomicrons as determined by electrophoresis using a SPIFE Vis Cholesterol gel kit for lipids and Coomassie Blue for proteins. >=95% of total lipoprotein content by electrophoresis.

Prepared from fresh, non-frozen plasma shown to be non reactive for HBsAg, anti-HCV, anti-HBc, and negative for anti-HIV 1 & 2 by FDA-required tests.
