Four main types of bacterial endotoxin testing methods have been developed based on the principles of LAL testing. These all have important applications in quality control (QC) testing during the manufacture of parenteral medicines and injectable devices. Turbidimetric, chromogenic and rFC assays are quantitative, revealing not just the presence of endotoxin but also the amount present wheras the gel clot assay offers a simple but qualitative yes/no answer.

Developed as an animal-free alternative to the BET test
PyroGeneTM rFC Assay does not use horseshoe crab blood as the raw material, therefore, there is less dependence on the animal, which results in less animal utilization and offers an animal-free security of supply.
