The PYROSTAR™ brand of Wako specializes in all reagents, instruments and other accessories that are necessary to perform the detection of bacterial endotoxins in different environments. During research for medicines, diseases or other branches of biomedicine, it may be necessary to perform this type of analysis. This is mainly due to the fact that bacterial endotoxins are nothing more than lipopolysaccharides that are part of the outer cell wall of Gram-negative bacteria which may be present even in aseptic environments.
Lipopolysaccharides are released when the lysis of Gram-negative bacteria is produced and the most reliable test for their detection is the use of a Limulus Amebocyte Lysate, known as the LAL method. The main advantage of using the PYROSTAR™ product line is that the researcher makes sure you have all the resources needed to carry out the LAL test reliably, with all necessary resources.
Using the LAL tests of Wako, measurements can be taken via any of the detection methods that have been developed for analysis, which include turbidimetric detection, detection through gel clot formation (gel-clot) or colorimetry. To perform these tests, both the reagents and the kits that already contain everything needed for the experiment are sold. Some of the products found in the catalogue of the brand PYROSTAR™ are the Limulus test PS, the Limulus Color KY Kit and the PYROSTAR™ ES-F Kit. In all these tests, the interference of glucans is eliminated through the addition of a Curdlan derivative in a high concentration, which, according to the studies conducted by the experts of the company Wako experts, eliminates the possibility that the LAL test results are affected by the presence of beta glucans.
For all the reasons mentioned above, we encourage researchers to make use of the wide variety of products offered by the brand PYROSTAR™ for the analysis of bacterial endotoxins, which needs to be done in the course of any investigation.
