Endotoxin detection: techniques and developments


American Pharmaceutical Review has issued a special supplement dedicated to endotoxin testing.

The supplement features interesting articles on the endotoxin concern of biologics (by Kevin Williams); regulatory issues pertaining to endotoxin testing (by Michael Dawson); a comparative study examining different methods of endotoxin destruction (by Tim Sandle); an examination of future developments in endotoxin testing (by Karen Zink McCullough); and preparation of a naturally occurring endotoxin challenge study (by Kim Bowers and Lynn Johnson).

The supplement also contains other information relating to endotoxin and LAL testing, and makes for a useful and interesting read in relation to more advanced aspects of the bacterial endotoxin test.

For further details, see APR.
