Thank goodness they pulled their product from the market. Like this test and the Pyrotest. Many of their products do not work and I do not recommend using their growth-based media products because of problems supporting growth. There a couple of companies that sell ECV (Endotoxin Challenge vials). If you GTS (Google that **bleep**), you will find options to consider. The company called Lonza prepares ECVs for the pharmaceutical industry. http://bio.lonza.com/uploads/tx_mwaxmarketingmaterial/Lonza_ManualsProductInstructions_Endotoxin_Cha... Hope this helps.

Thank you, Eric! Lonza supplies the LAL to QI, but Lonza's process is much more intensive than the QI Medical product. How often is the depyrogenation validation recommended? I asked both Lonza and Charles River and it appears to be up to the facilities' discretion. Any thoughts?
