Lipid Particle Analysis

Testing at ARUP Laboratories

LipoFit by NMR

LipoFit by NMR is a competitive alternative to lipid particle analysis tests. High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology is used to measure a patient’s lipoprotein particle number and size.

When to order testing?

Lipid particle analysis testing may be useful to guide therapy in appropriate high- risk patients:

  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Elevated triglycerides

It is not recommended to routinely order lipid particle analysis as screening tests for cardiovascular disease.
