FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals U.S.A. Corporation (FUJIFILM Wako) is recognized around the world as a trusted supplier of pure chemicals and reagents. After establishing a sales office in Dallas, Texas, in 1981, we grew significantly in the U.S. and in 1989, relocated our corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility to Richmond,
The Limulus Color KY Series are quantitative kinetic chromogenic assays (KCA) that are endotoxin-specific and unreactive to (1,3)-ß-D-glucan. This series includes both a multi-test kit and a single-test kit, which utilize a synthetic substrate that produces a yellow color to detect endotoxin with high sensitivity. All reagent kits
The PYROSTAR™ ES-F series of reagents are endotoxin-specific and specially formulated to be unreactive to (1,3)-ß-D-glucan. In addition, these products are dual-purpose, meaning they are formulated to be used as either a gel clot or kinetic turbidimetric assay. The kits are available in a single-test or multi-test
PYROSTAR™ ES-F/PLATE is a multi-test vial kit having the same endotoxin-specific formulation as our other ES-F series products yet designed to be used with the microplate reader. To use this configuration, the user dispenses 0.05 mL of the sample into the microplate followed by 0.05 mL of dissolved
The Limulus PS Single Test contains endotoxin-specific single-test vials and an affinity resin suspension called PyroSep™, which is designed to overcome any product interference by adsorbing potential endotoxin in samples while washing away the inhibitory components.
The Endotoxin indicator vials are ready-to-use vials composed of E. coli O55:B5 (>1000 EU/vial) for performing depyrogenation validation studies to ensure that a process is effectively inactivating and/or destroying endotoxin. These vials may be tested using reagents from our PYROSTAR™ ES-F series.
Traditionally, water or saline solution has been used to extract endotoxin in tests involving medical devices and equipment; however, the efficacy of this extraction method is debated. In order to provide our customers with a more reliable method, FUJIFILM Wako has developed a solution containing human serum albumin (HSA) that
The ES Buffer is an endotoxin-specific buffer that is ideal for untreated LAL. Though all LAL reagents produced by FUJIFILM Wako are endotoxin-specific, other commercially available LAL reagents are not. Without this buffer, tests can activate (1,3)-ß-D-glucan when trying to determine the endotoxin concentration in the sample.
The Toxinometer® ET-7000 is a computer-operated kinetic incubating tube reader, designed to be exceptionally user-friendly. State-of-the-art expansion modules can be connected to allow for endotoxin testing in a wide range of fields and sample quantities. The Toxinometer® ET-7000 can perform all LAL testing methodologies (gel clot, kinetic turbidimetric,
The Toximaster® QC8 software supports data processing based on the protocols complying with three types of pharmacopeia (USP/EP/JP) for bacterial endotoxin testing. This software is compliant with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 ERES (electronic records/electronic signature), which requires the proper information from all parties involved in the testing
