given 3 fat samples and told that one of them contains cholesterol,outline the test you would use to identify which of these samples contains cholesterol.

  • biochemistry -

    The easy way is to test for the combination of cholesterol and proteins commonly found in tissue: lipoproteins. Biuret solution will do this.

    If that is positive, that means proteins are in the "fat". The other two samples should test negative.
