Why Ultrapure Water is Essential for Consistent, Reproducible Endotoxin Results


Have you ever wondered why endotoxin testing is crucial? Endotoxins are toxic substances found in the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, and they can cause severe reactions in humans, including fever, shock, and even death.

It is essential to ensure that products are free from endotoxins. However, achieving accurate and reliable endotoxin results requires more than endotoxin-free plastic ware and the right testing methods. A key potential source of endotoxin contamination can be the lab water supply.

In this interview with Dr. Kunal Kureja, Application Scientist for Lab Water at Sartorius AG, you’ll explore what type of ultrapure water is suitable for use in endotoxin analysis and how to validate and verify it is endotoxin-free.
