Pfizer Successfully Implements Endosafe® Endotoxin Testing Platforms
Over the last 3 years, Pfizer has assessed the Endosafe® rapid test methods on dozens of applications and gathered extensive data to support comparability to USP<85> and PharmEur 2.6.14 Bacterial Endotoxin.
This poster, which was presented by Pfizer at the 2014 PDA Annual Meeting, provides a summary of the methodology, Endosafe® platform, collected data to support compatibility to traditional methods, examples of implementation and the operational benefits realized.
Summary of Evaluation and Benefits:
- 47,000+ water and buffer samples tested, by 19 different users, demonstrated the assay performs as designed, results distributed across compendial acceptance of 50% to 200% spike recovery
- Endosafe platform system aligned with USP<85> and PharmEur 2.6.14
- Reduced operator error, cost/test, training, metrology, reagent overhead/control and technician test time
- Reduction of investigations (~$1,800/investigations)
- Moved upwards of 60% of testing from Lab to Floor
- Pfizer global implementation: 69 PTS™ units and 20+ MCS™ units
