Using the same principle (UV spectrometric monitoring of pyridine coenzyme oxidation), LDH activity can be measured by either the lactate-to-pyruvate reaction (LP, forward reaction) or the pyruvate-to-lactate reaction (PL, backward reaction).
What does L:P stand for?
L:P stands for Lactate-to-Pyruvate (blood ratio)

Evaluation of the elevated anion gap demonstrated elevated lactate and pyruvate levels and a lactate-to-pyruvate ratio greater than 20:1.
4 mmol/L), LDH would have to be > 100 000 U/L (by a lactate-to-pyruvate methodology) in the presence of a lactate concentration above the normal reference interval (correspondence from Siemens).
