Pyrogen (LAL) Testing - FDA Guideline, USP <85>, AAMI ST72:2002
MicroMed performs pyrogen testing in accordance with FDA guidelines to determine the level of bacterial endotoxin present on devices. MicroMed provides kinetic turbidimetric, chromogenic and gel clot methods and our experts can help determine sources of endotoxin when specifications are exceeded. In addition, MicroMed tests water samples for endotoxin contamination to ensure that water systems are performing within the required specifications. For an additional charge, results can be provided the day samples are received or on the weekend if the laboratory is notified in advance.
