FUJIFILM Wako Resumes Distribution of Endotoxin Specific Buffer13th May 2020
For more than 20 years, FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals U.S.A. Corporation has had the honor of partnering with Charles River Microbial Solutions for the exclusive distribution of our endotoxin specific buffer (aka “ES Buffer”).
While the companies have continued to grow, our respective business focuses have needed to change in order to support that growth; therefore, we made the mutual decision to end the distribution agreement for this product, effective December 31, 2019.
As the original manufacturer of ES Buffer, FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals U.S.A. Corporation would like to assure our customers that your supply will not be interrupted. The same material previously purchased from Charles River Microbial Solutions is now available directly and exclusively from FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals U.S.A. Corporation.
Our ES Buffer is principally used in the investigation of false positive reactions that occur due to the presence of beta glucans and therefore serves as a valuable tool to those working in the areas of hemodialysis, as well as, pharmaceutical quality control.
False-positive beta glucan results are known to occur in patients undergoing hemodialysis with cellulose membranes; patients treated with immunoglobulin, albumin, or other blood products filtered through cellulose depth filters; and patients with serosal exposure to glucan containing gauze. These reactions have also been found in pharmaceutical manufacturing due to glucan contamination from fungal fermentation products.
With the change in our distribution channel, FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals U.S.A. Corporation can now offer our customers the same great quality, enhanced technical support and highly competitive pricing for ES Buffer directly from the manufacturer.
