The collected infranatant fraction is then brought back to its original volume, and the cholesterol content is then measured by the Abell-Kendall method. Heparinmanganese chloride precipitation of this infranatant fraction is used to remove LDL, and the cholesterol in the supernatant fraction is measured with the Abell-Kendall method to determine the HDL-C value.
Total cholesterol was calibrated using calibration material from Roche, with a value assigned by the modified Abell-Kendall method recommended by the CDC.
However, bias between the ID/MS method and the Abell-Kendall method is only a few percent, not the nearly 40% the IFCC mass spectrometry method appears to have relative to the DCCT BioRex 70 method.
