F. 210 The mean % composition of the major classes of lipoproteins is given: PL, phospholipid; chol, cholesterol and cholesterol ester; TAG, triglyceride. The mobility from the origin is pre-β; β; α see Fig. 1 for example. The density is the band at which the lipoproteins float from salt gradients. This chapter describes the use of self-generating continuous gradients of iodixanol for the separation of plasma lipoproteins (6). This method has unique advantages over the current reference method.

Centrifugation is the ‘gold-standard’ for the analysis of plasma lipoprotein classes and beta quantitation, and other analytical procedures (1–4). Lipoprotein classes are separated by flotation of plasma or serum in a series of centrifugation steps in which the density of the plasma is increased sequentially by addition of potassium bromide. Alternatively, plasma is layered beneath a discontinuous gradient and centrifuged to separate the lipoprotein classes in a single step. However, it is impractical to use these methods in a routine analytical or clinical laboratory because of the long centrifugation steps required.
