Endotoxin Control and Clearance in Biomanufacturing



WEBINAR

Endotoxin, a lipopolysaccharide (LPS), is a type of pyrogen and is a component of the exterior cell wall of gram-negative bacteria. To ensure the safety of a patient, endotoxin content in the drug should always be controlled. In biological processing, it may emanate from facility, utility, raw materials, process, and personnel.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Sources of endotoxin contamination
  • Contamination control strategy
  • Endotoxin removal strategies
