Grade Specifications

We are discontinuing the lipoprotein reagents that are currently sold under the Alfa Aesar brand.

For future orders, Thermo Fisher Scientific offers high-quality lipoprotein reagents under the Invitrogen™ and Gibco™ brands.

The available replacement can be found here: Invitrogen™ Low Density Lipoprotein from Human Plasma, oxidized (OxLDL)


Lipoprotein, low density, oxidized, human plasma, is evaluated for receptor binding to peritoneal macrophages. Furthermore, it is used to induce foam cell formation in macrophages.

Research on foam cell formation is relevant to the study of atherosclerosis. Cellular exposure to ox-LDL results in the formation of lipid droplets containing cholesteryl esters in the cytoplasm of the macrophage as the lipoprotein particles are metabolized by the cell.


Supplied at 2mg/ml in 1X phosphate-buffered saline at pH 7.4 and 0.3 mM EDTA. Contains gentamicin sulfate. Aseptically packaged and sterile filtered. Store at 4°C. Do not freeze. Short shelf life: up to 6 weeks. TBARS: 29-44 nmoles MDA/mg
