PyroGene™ Recombinant Factor C Assay – An Animal-free Alternative Method for Endotoxin Detection

Date: 15 Oct - 16 Oct 2013
Location: Online

Learn what you can do to help the horseshoe crab and prepare for the future.

In this 60-minute free webinar, you will not only hear about the technical advantages of the PyroGene™ rFC Assay, but also the importance of considering an alternative to the TAL and LAL-based assay technologies.

Hear Glenn Gauvry, President of The Ecological Research & Development Group (ERDG), discuss the importance of horseshoe crab conservation. The demand on the American and the Asian horseshoe crabs is steadily increasing while the Asian horseshoe crab species population is in decline.

Prepare your lab for the future! By switching to an alternative method, such as PyroGene™ rFC Assays, you can do your part in decreasing the demand on the the horseshoe crab while moving to a modern endotoxin detection method.

This webinar will be offered at two different dates and times:

Tuesday, 15 October 2013
2 PM EDT (New York)
11 AM PDT (Los Angeles)

Please join this webinar where we discuss horseshoe crab conservation, the validation of PyroGene™ rFC Assay and the importance of alternative endotoxin testing methods.

Topics covered include:

  • Horseshoe crab conservation efforts
  • The health of the global horseshoe crab population
  • The increasing demand on the supply of TAL and LAL
  • Why you should consider alternative endotoxin testing methods
  • How to switch to the PyroGene™ Recombinant Factor C-based Endotoxin Test
  • The advantages of using PyroGene™ rFC Assay over LAL and TAL-based methods
