Quantitative determination of peptidoglycan (PG) and (1->3)-β-D-glucan in parental solutions and active pharmaceutical

The SLP-HS Single Reagent Set II is able to detect both peptidoglycan (PG) and (1->3)-β-D-glucan (BDG). The product uses a self-defense mechanism of silkworm Bombyx mori which leads to a color change by building a black melanin pigment in the presence of microbial contamination. Since PG is found in all bacterial cell walls and BDG in most fungi, the SLP (silkworm larvae plasma)-reagent constitutes a highly sensitive and broadband method for detection of microbial contamination
