Trends Discussed During Lonza’s First Global Endotoxin Testing Summit

The 2015 summit included discussions on the industry’s hottest topics led by speakers and audience alike. These included the evolution of endotoxin detection methodologies, horseshoe crab conservation, the issue of low endotoxin recovery (LER), an overview of the validation procedure required when using an alternative endotoxin testing method, such as Lonza’s PyroGene™ recombinant Factor C Assay, as well as the use of automation in quality control (QC) laboratories.
