This was in 1990, and technologies have improved greatly since then.
Finally, we leverage all of these techniques in developing and validating LAL test methods for customer-specific products.
Moreover, LAL results – where endotoxin is the pyrogen of concern – are more accurate and can be trended.
JD: The LAL test has dramatically improved the quality of drug products and medical devices since its introduction.
It has allowed the production process to be monitored in a way not possible before, resulting in better and safer products entering the healthcare system.
Furthermore, the relative low cost of the test allowed more samples to be tested.
