Endotoxin test with LabDisk

Residual bacteria detection for medical infusions

We have developed a LabDisk for the innovative Sievers Eclipse platform from SUEZ, which tests samples for endotoxin contamination simply, safely and reliably using liquid handling alone. This process is of great importance for producing medical infusions, for example.

The Eclipse platform miniaturizes, automates and parallelizes bacterial endotoxin tests. Based on centrifugal microfluidics, the assay preparation time is shortened by up to 85% and the consumption of expensive limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL) reagents is reduced by up to 90%. Per LabDisk, up to 21 samples can be analyzed simultaneously with fewer than 30 pipetting steps. Precise liquid handling including prestored endotoxin standards ensures high reproducibility.
