Bacterial Endotoxin Testing with Microfluidic Automation.


Bacterial endotoxin testing is a fundamental safety requirement in the pharmaceutical industry. Before release to the market, parenteral pharmaceutical products require testing for the absence of endotoxins as certain levels of bacterial endotoxins in the patient’s bloodstream can cause severe health risks for the patient. In this presentation, you will learn about a new microfluidic-based platform for the bacterial endotoxin test. The platform enables labs to achieve high throughput and easy assay setup. This allows mitigating risk for errors and reducing the inherent variability in this test, delivering precise and accurate results through automation while remaining fully in compliance with the regulations to assure patient safety.
