Make the move to PyroMAT™ System: the only cell line-based Monocyte Activation Test for the detection of pyrogens

Start Date:25 OCTOBER 2018

Start Time:5pm CEST (Paris)/11am EDT (New York)

Duration:60 minutes


For pharmaceutical companies, patient safety has always been the priority. That’s why pyrogen detection has become a mandatory Quality Control test for release of any parenteral drug.

With the Monocyte Activation Test, the only in vitro test for the detection of the full range of pyrogens (including endotoxin and Non Endotoxin Pyrogens), it’s now time to move away from animal-based test for pyrogen detection.

The new PyroMAT™ System provides pharma companies with a robust solution to make the move to in vitro Pyrogen Test with a ready-to use kit!
