There is never a convenient time for an invalid test result. While the horseshoe crab-derived LAL reagent is the most sensitive and reliable method available for bacterial endotoxin testing, the progression of technology today has allowed for improvement in utilizing it into Charles River Endosafe® LAL reagent cartridges.
Rapid Test Cartridges for LAL, Gram ID & Beta-D-Glucan Detection Assays
Traditional endotoxin testing has long had pain points, including long turnaround times, extensive training, and multiple steps for assay preparation. To make matters worse, an invalid test result can potentially cripple your manufacturing timelines.
The Charles River Endosafe® cartridge technology is our innovative response to our customers’ need for higher sensitivity and faster quantitative results. Designed to optimize and refine our use of LAL, the cartridge technology eliminates a significant amount of the raw material and accessories required for traditional LAL testing methods while reducing time-consuming preparation and technician variability.
All of our highly flexible rapid testing platforms utilize our FDA-licensed LAL cartridges as well as a variety of non-regulated cartridges for simple, 15-minute testing. The cartridges are pre-loaded with all of the reagents required to perform an LAL test, eliminating preparation of multiple reagents and reducing the opportunity for technician error.
