New Product: PREVU Skin Cholesterol Test

Miraculins PREVU Skin Cholesterol Test

Miraculins_PrevuThis test provides a non-invasive and painless measurement of skin cholesterol. According to our intern, Robert Bushey, University of Florida College of Pharmacy, skin comprises 11% of the total body’s cholesterol and is a newly determined risk factor for heart disease. Changes in skin cholesterol closely parallel those of vascular cholesterol and high skin cholesterol is a valuable surrogate for arterial accumulation. This test can give us a much better idea of what is sticking to the vessels rather than what is circulating in the blood.
