Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate Test Market: Global Market Revenue and Share by Manufacturers

Press Release

Limulus amoebocyte lysate test is a type of pyrogen test. This test is utilized for the detection of minute quantity of bacterial toxins or pyrogens in pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and others. Pyrogen is a substance that leads to increase in body temperature after it is injected. Limulus amoebocyte lysate test is the most widely accepted and adopted test method for the quality control of parenteral drugs as it is an aqueous extract of blood cells from horseshoe crabs.

Associates of Cape Cod, Inc., a company specialized in chromogenic and turbid metric reagent technologies, received the first U.S. FDA approval for limulus amoebocyte lysate testing methodology and pioneered in manufacturing the first FDA licensed limulus amoebocyte lysate test reagent. In May 2014, the company launched Pyrosate, a limulus amoebocyte lysate gel-clot test and the U.S. FDA approved rapid endotoxin detection kit. This detection kit is ideal for dialysis centers, compounding pharmacies, medical devices, and pharmaceutical companies.

The test is more sensitive than the rabbit pyrogen test method. Implantable medical devices, anesthesia, and radioactive drugs are subjected to limulus amoebocyte lysate test. The test is carried out by manufacturers at the last stage of the manufacturing process to keep a quality control on the final product. It is the most preferred testing option for vaccines and the most testing type method used among the health care professionals owing to factors such as low cost, reliability, sensitivity, and no-animal use.
