April 9 Webinar: In vitro Monocyte-Activation Test for the detection of pyrogens; presented by Thomas Hartung

Author: Sherry Ward, AltTox

Webinar Title: On the whole blood assay (MAT): Detection of broad spectrum of pyrogens & examples of medical device testing

Speakers: Thomas Hartung, MD, PhD, Director Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) and Audrey Borel, PhD, EMD Millipore

Abstract:

Pyrogens in pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biotherapeutics and cosmetics can cause fevers in humans and are potentially life-threatening. Yet standard pyrogen detection methods have drawbacks. The Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) test only identifies endotoxins, while the rabbit pyrogen test (RPT) endangers animals. Fortunately, the MAT (Monocyte-Activation Tests) alternative covers a much broader range of pyrogens and is completely animal-free. In our insightful webinar you will get a closer look at the whole blood assay, non-endotoxin pyrogens detection, and pyrogen testing in medical devices.
