Evaluation of risk for atherosclerotic
Helpful to aid in the detection of Tangier disease.
Centrifuge and aliquot within 2 hours of collection. Red Top Tubes should be centrifuged and aliquoted within 2 hours of collection.

Low levels of apolipoprotein Al (ApoAl) confer increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
ApoA1 below 25 mg/dl may aid in the detection of a genetic disorder such as Tangier disease.
