Endotoxin assay inhibition

The results showed that the major interference on the gel-clot assay occurs in presence of acetic acid and in concentrates containing acid acetic, even the pH being adjusted between 6. Am Ind Hyg Assoc J.

Inhibition enhancement endotoxin testing

They were assayed by the gel-clot method from two different suppliers, and the samples that showed inhibition effect were also assayed by the chromogenic method. Two types of analyses were performed, with various dilutions and with spiked samples. Am Ind Hyg Assoc J. Results showed that inhibition and enhancement occurred in some samples, leading to respective underestimation and overestimation of the endotoxin concentration. The results showed that the major interference on the gel-clot assay occurs in presence of acetic acid and in concentrates containing acid acetic, even the pH being adjusted between 6. However, the test, after an adequate dilution, could be validating for all samples. Inhibition and enhancement in the analysis of airborne endotoxin levels in various occupational environments.

However, the test, after an adequate dilution, could be validating for all samples. Interference in the Limulus amebocyte lysate assay for endotoxin determination in peritoneal dialysis fluids and concentrates for hemodialysis.

The compositions were also assayed to investigate the possibility of synergistic effect. False conclusions about exposure levels and their potential health effects might be introduced.

Results show that quality control procedures need to become standard practice when endotoxins are analyzed in occupational environments and development of a validated, generally accepted protocol should be encouraged. The experiments were carried out individually with each substance that compose fluids for hemodialysis, to determine the possible inhibition or enhancement effects that they could cause on the LAL assay.

Inhibition and enhancement in the analysis of airborne endotoxin levels in various occupational environments. When inhibition or enhancement is present, the result of this study shows that large differences in endotoxin concentration may be found, depending on the dilution at which the sample is analyzed.

Bacterial endotoxin test calculation

Chromogenic test can be used for peritoneal dialysis fluids considering a limit of 0. Inhibition and enhancement in the analysis of airborne endotoxin levels in various occupational environments. Results showed that inhibition and enhancement occurred in some samples, leading to respective underestimation and overestimation of the endotoxin concentration. Inhibition and enhancement effects on the Limulus Amebocyte Lysate LAL assay were studied in a series of endotoxin exposure samples from various occupational environments. Considering the results and that the chromogenic is a more time-consuming method, endotoxins in fluids for hemodialysis can be satisfactorily assayed by the gel-clot method. The experiments were carried out individually with each substance that compose fluids for hemodialysis, to determine the possible inhibition or enhancement effects that they could cause on the LAL assay. The compositions were also assayed to investigate the possibility of synergistic effect. The results showed that the major interference on the gel-clot assay occurs in presence of acetic acid and in concentrates containing acid acetic, even the pH being adjusted between 6.
