Special Focus on Endotoxin / Pyrogen Testing


Browse through our rapidmicrobiology special focus on tests for endotoxins and Non-Endotoxin Pyrogens (NEP), learn from leading experts in the field such as Allen Burgenson who gives us the latest on how use of recombinant Factor C (rFC) is gaining pharmacopeial acceptance for compendial Bacterial Endotoxin Testing (BET); Kevin Williams describes how the use of pre-spiked plates can improve efficiency and give a rapid result; plus find out how the Monocyte Activation Test solution better represents the human immune response and will detect all pyrogens including NEPs such as from yeasts/molds and viruses.

Once you've read through all these, you'll be ready to take our pyrogen and endotoxin testing quiz - check to see if you really know the difference between LAL, rFC, MAT!
