Read Frequently Asked Questions

The webinar will review the current testing requirements as defined in the new, revised FDA guidance on Endotoxin and Pyrogen testing. It will further help attendees understand the issues surrounding the Low Endotoxin Recovery (LER) and its regulatory outcome.

Why Should You Attend:

The objective of this interactive webinar is to explore the new Guidance for Industry on Pyrogen and Endotoxins Testing which addresses those issues that may be subject to misinterpretation, and are not covered in compendial procedures or in the currently available Guidance documents and how they impact testing within the typical Quality Control laboratory. It will also discuss the results of Low Endotoxin Recovery (LER).

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Review of the current testing requirements to include Low Endotoxin Recovery (LER)
  • What happened to the old 87/91 LAL Guidance for Industry Document
  • What has replaced it and why
  • Common issues, misunderstandings and misinterpretations
  • Determine who comprise the Agency Guidance team within this new proposed Guidance
  • Documents supporting this new Guidance
  • Sampling, storage, handling and pooling
  • How does transition happen from one bacterial endotoxin test to another
  • Determine when the Rabbit Pyrogen Test is appropriate to use in lieu of the LAL
  • The FDA's expectation for screening of therapeutic products

Who Will Benefit:

  • Quality professionals

Topic Background:

The FDA posted on their web site on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 a notice that they had withdrawn the 1987 Guideline on Validation of the Limulus Amebocyte Lysate Test as an End Product Endotoxin Test for Human Parenteral Drugs, Biological Products and Medical Devices. They advised that the 1987 Guideline is considered obsolete and does not reflect the Agency's current thinking on the topic. In lieu of this document, the FDA advised that they would be issuing a Guidance for Industry on Pyrogen and Endotoxins Testing: Questions and Answers during the November/ December 2011 timeframe. After much delay, this NEW Guidance was released in June 2012.

The FDA references, however, three documents that they believe have more than offset the previous FDA Guidance that was withdrawn. They advise that these documents be referenced for the fundamental principles of the gel clot, photometric and kinetic test methods.

This new, revised Questions and Answers Guidance supplements the above three documents and addresses those issues that may be subject to misinterpretation, not covered in compendial procedures or in the previously available Guidance document.

In addition, much has been published during the past several years discussing the issue of Low Endotoxin Recovery (LER). Many users have “stood on the sidelines” awaiting the smoke to clear. The smoke has now cleared and this webinar will discuss the long awaited results.
