The Bruker B.I.-LISA lipoprotein panel offers significant benefits versus the current testing modality, e.g. the ultracentrifugation method, which typically takes 1 week per sample. The method is based on the analysis of signals in the 1H-NMR spectrum which are related to the lipoproteins. Differences in lipoprotein composition, size and density translate into respective signal line shape differences, which can be used to extract information on lipoprotein main- and subclasses.
