Because of the controversy over the best method for assaying high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in the clinical laboratory, a commonly used phosphotungstate method for precipitating low density and very low density lipoproteins (LDL and VLDL) was compared with a recently recommended dextran sulfate precipitation method. The accuracy and precision of HDL cholesterol determinations were similar for both methods. Either of these procedures would appear to be equally satisfactory for the assay of HDL cholesterol in the clinical laboratory.
