Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will provide a review of the current testing requirements and discuss what happened to the old 87/91 LAL Guidance for Industry proposed guidance. The program will also discuss how to transition from one bacterial endotoxin test to another—understanding the RPT (Rabbit Pyrogen Test). Participants will also gain a clearer perspective of the Monocyte Activation Test (MAT).

Instead, it addresses those issues that may be subject to misinterpretation and are not covered in compendial procedures or in currently available documents.
