Limulus PS Single Test
Principle: When using this product, the endotoxin in the sample is adsorbed onto a capillary column filled with PyroSep™ (an affinity adsorbent with histidine bound to a water-insoluble support via a spacer). Inhibitory substances contained in the sample are washed away, allowing the adsorbed endotoxin to be measured with the single-test format LAL reagent.
Suitability: Endotoxin-specific measurement in samples that typically have an inhibitory component.
Capital equipment required: Yes
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.
- Endotoxin-specific reagent avoids false-positive results from glucans
- This kit is in a single-test configuration to avoid contamination
- KTA quantitation for this product is performed on the Toxinometer®
- Allows endotoxin-specific measurement in samples that typically have inhibitory components: ethanol, silicone oil, soybean oil, olive oil, stearic acid, egg yolk lecithin, oil adjuvanted vaccine, albumin products, coagulation factor products (factor 8), interferon formulation, antithrombin III, immunoglobulin product and other ethanol-soluble samples
