Abstract:

A method has been devised by which the cholesterol uptake of serum can be measured on volumes as small as 1.2 ml. Equipment by which this procedure can be carried out is described. Key to the use of the small volumes is a flexible plastic incubation chamber and a unit in which filtration, centrifugation, and pipetting can be carried out without the necessity of transferring the filtrate to another vessel. The equipment is useful for other laboratory procedures which involve filtration of small volumes. The procedure used in micro measurement of cholesterol uptake is described.
