The PyroMAT® System uses cryopreserved Mono-Mac-6 (MM6) human monocytic cells as a source of monocytes. The response to a full range of pyrogens, including endotoxins and non-endotoxin pyrogens (NEPs)is determined by the measurement of interleukin-6 (IL-6) produced by the Mono-Mac-6 cells using ELISA.
NEP control flagellin is a preparation of flagellin from Salmonella typhimurium and supplied in a lyophilized form. Flagellin is a non-endotoxin pyrogen (NEP) that activates the TLR5 receptor of monocytes and can be used as a positive control with the PyroMAT® System (Monocyte Activation Test for pyrogen detection).
NEP control of flagellin can be used as a positive control with the PyroMAT® System. It is to be used for Product Specific Validation (PSV) and routine testing to show that the system can detect non-endotoxin pyrogen contaminants in pharmaceutical products.
