Understanding the Basic Requirement of the Bacterial Endotoxin Testing (BET) or LAL Program


Instructor: Charity Ogunsanya
Product ID: 705008

  • Duration: 90 Min
This webinar will help the attendee gain an understanding of the requirements of current USP <85> Bacterial Endotoxin Test (BET), European Pharmacopoeia (Chapter 2.6.14) and the Japanese Pharmacopoeia (General Tests, No. 4.01). The webinar will provide the attendee the ability to understand the different LAL testing methodologies, choosing the best test method applicable to the product type, criticality of the BET test result as it applies to the release of a cGMP manufactured product.

Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

cGMP drug products relies on the bacterial endotoxin test as a critical release test for products based on the route of administration of the drug product. Having a good concept of this critical release assay, its application and importance to the manufacture of cGMP product in valuable so as to avoid costly errors, batch disposal, expensive failure investigations and delays in the release of products that some manufacturers have undergone.

Attendees will be able to relate to the steps that are involved in the performance of the different types of endotoxin test, when to use what method, the sensitivity of each chosen method. The attendee will also be able to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each method and how to identify, investigate and resolve false positive or negative results. Attendees will also be able to understand how the production and process controls of a manufacturing facility affect the product endotoxin levels.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

This webinar will provide a great resource to Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology and Medical Device Industries that manufactures cGMP product requiring bacterial endotoxin release assay.
