When Lp(a) in human serum is exposed to specific monoclonal antibody, the corresponding antigen-antibody complexes can be formed, making for an increased turbidity of the sample. The turbidity is proportional to the concentration of Lp(a) in the presence of the monoclonal antibody. The concentration of Lp(a) in the samples can be determined by comparing to the standard sample in the specific wavelength.
