PYROGENICITY is the ability of a chemical agent or other substance to produce a febrile response.
Pyrogenic responses may be material-mediated, endotoxin-mediated, or mediated by other substances.
In accordance with the ISO 10993-11 we commonly conduct two test types:
LAL (Limus Amebocyte Lisate) test to detected endotoxin-specific factors,
Material-mediated pyrogenicity test (Rabbit Pyrogen Test) which has a wide range for detecting non-endotoxin pyrogenicity for example endogenous pyrogens, prostaglandins, bacterial exotoxins, neurotransmitters and metals such as nickel salt, in same instances.
Are you confused what kind of test you need.
