A relatively simple and rapid procedure for the preferential extraction of total cholesterol and glycerides from serum is presented. Tecnics for quantitative assay of these lipids are included. This extraction-separation method eliminates the separate steps ordinarily required in the extraction of lipids and the removal of phospholipids from the extract. The clear extract is obtained without filtration or centrifugation. This technic is suitable for processing a large number of specimens per day and is also practical for use in a small clinical laboratory. Author
