standard the practice of sampling for endotoxins


gram-negative bacteria; endotoxins; bacteria; Limulus Amebocyte Lysate


Currently there are no standardized sampling methods developed for the collection of endotoxins from surfaces. Until a standardized endotoxin sampling method is developed, it will be difficult to compare the results of various studies.
Endotoxins are increasingly becoming markers of microbiological interest.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
