PRESS RELEASE: NEW CHROMOGENIC ENDOTOXIN DETECTION SYSTEM
January 31, 2011
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Associates of Cape Cod, Inc., (ACC) is proud to introduce its NEW CHROMOGENIC ENDOTOXIN DETECTION SYSTEM incorporating the enhanced Pyrochrome® chromogenic reagent and the new-to-market Pyros Kinetix® Flex Incubating Kinetic tube reader. This system offers our customers diverse options for conducting endotoxin testing.
ACC's enhanced Pyrochrome® is a versatile, quantitative reagent for performing kinetic or endpoint assays. The reagent features a maximum sensitivity of 0.001 EU/mL, the option to use polynomial regression and an economical sample to lysate volume ratio of 4:1. Polynomial regression enables more accurate determination of endotoxin concentrations, especially when a wide range standard curve is used.
The Pyros Kinetix® Flex reader is an optical tube reader that runs both chromogenic and turbidimetric assays. Designed with flexibility and efficiency in mind, the Pyros Kinetix® Flex reader and Pyros® EQS Software combine to provide a complete system that is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant for efficient, accurate endotoxin testing. AJ Meuse, President and CEO of ACC stated "We are very excited about the opportunities that Pyrochrome® and the Pyros Kinetix® Flex reader system is going to offer the market. We understand that quality, regulatory compliance and exceptional technical support are critical components for our customers when deciding who they will trust with their endotoxin release testing and this new system was designed to satisfy our customer’s needs."
The Pyros Kinetix® Flex reader is available in three configurations: 32, 64 and 96 eight mm wells. Each well is independently timed, allowing the operator to add more samples while a run is in progress. The unit features precise temperature control, solid state design and utilizes reliable Pyroclear® depyrogenated test tubes, which eliminates potential hot wells that are often found when using mircroplates.
ACC is an industry innovator and has been a leading global supplier of endotoxin and glucan detection products and services for nearly four decades. During this time, ACC has supplied our customers with products and services that have helped ensure the safety of their parenteral drugs, biological products and medical devices.
