Glucan Testing

Fast simple Glucan interference check
Glucans are known to cause false positive results in LAL assays, triggering the need for further investigations. Our Endosafe®-PTS™ Glucan assay allows you to quickly and easily quantify these Glucans, leading to better process monitoring and faster out-of-specification (OOS) resolutions.

The Endosafe®-PTS™ Glucan assay is a rapid, in-process test designed for investigational purposes to validate that your yeast-derived products are clear of (1,3)-ß-D Glucans. The disposable Glucan cartridges the system uses have a sensitivity range of 10-1,000 pg/ml, yield results in less than 30 minutes, and can be run on the same portable instrument that is used for PTS™ Endotoxin detection or PTS™ Gram ID.

Glucan-specific buffering compounds for added security

We additionally offer a Glucan Blocking buffer for those compounds that are known in advance to have a strong possibility of being contaminated by Glucans. Talk to us about how we can best assist your operations today.
