LAL Kinetic Colorimetric Assay

KCA is a quantitative test that uses synthetic chromogenic substrate cleavage to detect the activation of the LAL reagent induced by endotoxin.

The Limulus Color KY Series are quantitative KCAs that are endotoxin-specific and unreactive to (1→3)-β-D-glucan. It utilises a synthetic substrate that produces a yellow colour to detect endotoxin with high sensitivity.
