Principle of the Test
Samples containing B-Glucans (carbohydrates, mold, starch, plant material, food supplements) interfere with the pyrochrome and produce falsely elevated endotoxin levels. Please inform the laboratory if your sample contains carbohydrates or B-glucans. A special buffer is used to resuspend the pyrochrome in order to overcome the nonspecific interference. There is an additional $30 per sample for samples requiring the special re suspension buffer.
The Charles River Endosafe PTS System:
The Endosafe®-PTS™ was used to determine the level of endotoxin in the test article. The PTS™ utilizes LAL reagents in an FDA-licensed disposable test cartridge with a handheld reader for a completely contained, real-time endotoxin testing system.
