“Limulus Amebocyte Lysate” or LAL is an extract from the blood cells of the horseshoe crab that reacts when it comes into contact with endotoxins. LAL is performed for the purpose of identifying the pyrogen levels of medical devices in accordance with the United States Pharmacopoeia Guidelines.
The Food and Drug Administration requires that the bacterial endotoxin levels be determined prior to the sale of any device that is labeled “Pyrogen Free. Pyrogen levels are established to determine if the product is safe for its intended use.
