Endotoxin Extracting Solution for LAL Test (10ml x 4) Endotoxin Extracting Solution for LAL Test (10ml x 4)

Conventionally, water or saline solution has been used to extract endotoxin in tests on medical devices and equipment; however, the efficacy of this extraction method is now in question. This product is an endotoxin-free extracting solution (to be used in 1:20 dilution) containing human serum albumin (HSA), and capable of extracting endotoxins which cannot be extracted in water or saline solution. It is recommended that this product be used in particular for endotoxin testing on equipment and devices which may come into contact with fluids containing blood or protein.
