Testing for Endotoxins and Pyrogens - a rapidmicrobiology Special Focus


How much confidence have you in your current pyrogen and bacterial endotoxin test methods? What's your thoughts on moving away from rabbit pyrogen tests or LAL to non-animal-based testing, such as the Monocyte Activation Test (MAT) and recombinant Factor C (rFC)?

Whether you're happy with the status quo or considering a changing of the guard, you'll find this comprehensive special focus on endotoxin & pyrogen (non-endotoxin) testing of benefit. Get in touch with suppliers today and ask for that free consultation or brochure, to be sure you are using the most suitable kits for the safe release of your company's parenterals and medical devices as implants.
