This company has received a CLIA waiver under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) for its new CardioChek lipid panel test strip to run on the CardioChek PA.
     The Lipid Panel Test Strips provide lipid results (total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and calculated LDL cholesterol) from a single, 35 to 40 mL drop of blood, enabling healthcare professionals to easily test and immediately counsel their patients on lipid-lowering therapies, to understand their risk for developing coronary heart disease, their medication regimen, and the benefits of long-term persistence of therapy.
     The portable CardioChek PA whole blood test system provides point-of-care testing for the CLIA-Waived physician office laboratory market.
