SLP Pyrogen Assay

Quantitative determination of peptidoglycan (PG) and (1->3)-β-D-glucan in parental solutions and active pharmaceutical.

The SLP-HS Single Reagent Set II uses a self-defence mechanism of silkworm Bombyx mori which leads to a colour change in the presence of microbial contamination. PG is found in all bacterial cell walls and BDG in most fungi.
