- Globally harmonised microbial identification services with Charles River Accugenix®
Pharmaceutical manufacturing sites are required by regulatory agencies to establish comprehensive and reliable quality systems and environmental monitoring (EM) programmes, which measure the state of control of their manufacturing and ensure data integrity. Charles River Laboratories’ Accugenix laboratories have the experience and technology necessary to handle all your microbial identification needs rapidly and accurately, improve your processes, and reduce your costs while helping to protect your manufacturing process and brand reputation.
- Your endotoxin experts
The future of sustainable Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) is here. The launch of Associates of Cape Cod, Inc.’s (ACC) PyroSmart NextGen™ recombinant Cascade Reagent (rCR) marks the introduction of a new sustainable recombinant LAL reagent technology for bacterial endotoxin testing (BET). There are other recombinant reagents on the market, but ACC’s is the only one that uses the same LAL cascade as traditional LAL reagents, while eliminating the potential for 1,3-β-Dglucans cross reactivity. PyroSmart NextGen gives you the same complete cascade with all of the quality and consistency of results you have come to expect from ACC LAL reagents.
