Summary and Impressions
Feel the Pulse of Endotoxin Detection and Impact its Future
12th - 14th June 2018, Annapolis, MD & Pickering Beach, DE, USA.
The 4th Global Endotoxin Testing Summit once again brought together the community to explore the most pertinent topics affecting the industry today.
Experts from the pharma industry, key opinion leaders, end-users and regulators gathered to share updates on hot topics and to learn from the practical experience of others. A key focus was the conservation of the horseshoe crab through sustainable practices, the continuing discussion of recombinant factor C, and a hands-on opportunity to save horseshoe crabs stranded on Pickering Beach in support of ERDG’s Just Flip em!® program.
Other sessions demonstrated the huge progress made by the community over recent years in understanding and overcoming the challenges of low endotoxin recovery (LER), as well as exploring potential applications for new pyrogen tests such as the Monocyte Activation Test (MAT). As ever, automation and data integrity discussions demonstrated the industry’s commitment to delivering the best possible endotoxin results.
