CRMLN: List of CRMLN Member Laboratories

The Cholesterol Reference Method Laboratory Network consists of eight members. Many of the laboratories have participated in the network for more than 20 years. The long-time member laboratories have evaluated the analytical accuracy and precision of over 300 assays and laboratories each year for total cholesterol, HDL-C, and LDL-C. There are also two new members that are currently undergoing initial certification process (as of 06/07/2016).
