Revision of the United States Pharmacopoeia Bacterial Endotoxin Test Chapter
Letter From The Editor
On December 1, 2012 the latest version of the USP Bacterial Endotoxins Test chapter became effective. The changes are not major but some of them are interesting. One simplifies the determination of endotoxin limits for certain products. While rather minor itself, this change provides a reminder that limits for these product were substantially tightened in 2011. In this article each of the changes are considered and their impact on endotoxin testing is assessed.
With best wishes,
Michael Dawson, Ph.D.
