Deeper Insights Into Genetic Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

SpectraCell's CardiacNexus profile combines our advanced LPP technology with an MTHFR gene test. LPP (Lipoprotein Particle Profile) reports the size and type of your lipoproteins, which is recognized as a superior tool in diagnosing problems of cholesterol and lipid metabolism. The patented LPP test addresses two key issue in heart health missed by other technologies: (1) who is at higher cardiovascular risk and (2) what to do about it.

The MTHFR test determines if a mutation of the MTHFR gene you carry. This gene controls a key enzyme (called Methylene Tetra Hydro Folate Reductase, or MTHFR). If you carry certain copies of this gene, you may be predisposed to specific B vitamin deficiencies, which overwhelming evidence confirms, is intimately linked to methylation disruptions that impact cardiovascular, neurological, reproductive, and detoxification systems. 



What We Measure:


LPP Plus Profile

  • Lipoprotein Fractionation
  • Total HDL Particles
  • Apolipoprotein A-1
  • Homocysteine
  • Lipoprotein Particle Numbers
  • Triglycerides
  • Apolipoprotein B
  • Insulin
  • Total LDL Particles
  • Lipoprotein (a)
  • hs-CRP


This test detects two of the most common mutations known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). The two variants are called C677T and A1298C and individuals can carry one or both variants.
