Medical Source is now helping physician owned laboratories add Lp-PLA2 (Lipoprotein-associated Phospholipase A2) to their clinical chemistry test menu.

Lp-PLA2 is an advanced cardiovascular test aimed at early detection of cardiovascular disease. The Lp-PLA2 activity test measures the amount of a specific enzyme in blood that occurs when there is an active atherosclerotic process that could lead to the rupture of plaque and cause a heart attack or stroke. This useful serologic marker with high specificity for advanced plaque is a useful diagnostic tool in cardiovascular risk stratification.

The Lp-PLA2 test can help you identify patients who would benefit from more aggressive therapy and is especially recommended for intermediate and high-risk patients.

The Medicare reimbursement for Lp-PLA2 averages between $46.00 - $47.00, while the reportable cost per test varies with instrument platforms, ranging from $12.50 to $18.00 using our FDA approved reagents. Please give us a call to learn more.
