---YY/T 0618-2007.
A pyrogen is any substance that can cause fever. The release of many medical products requires a pyrogen test. Pyrogens can be divided into two categories. micro
Biopyrogens (eg, bacteria, fungi, viruses) and non-microbial pyrogens (eg, drugs, device materials, steroids, plasma products). Heat found
Most of the original endotoxin is a Gram-negative bacterium. Although Gram-positive bacteria, fungi and viruses may be pyrogens, they are pyrogenic
The mechanism is different (systemic action) and the degree of action is lower than that of Gram-negative bacteria. This standard only includes Gram-negative bacterial endotoxin test.
Endotoxin is a high molecular weight lipopolysaccharide (LPS) component of the outer wall of Gram-negative bacteria, such as contaminating human blood or tissue, endotoxin
It can cause fever, meningitis and rapid decrease in blood pressure. When Gram-negative bacteria decompose or cleave, they are mainly composed of proteins, phospholipids and LPS.
The outer wall components of the cells are continuously released into the environment. Endotoxin contamination is difficult to prevent because it is widely found in nature and is stable in nature.
The smaller volume can be passed through a conventional sterilizing filter.
Medical products can be made pyrogenic without the following measures.
1) Production techniques that prevent or control endotoxin aggregation;
2) Depyrogenation by endotoxin inactivation (such as dry heat) or physical removal (such as washing, distillation, ultrafiltration).
This standard focuses on products that are produced without the need to remove the pyrogen step as part of the production process.
The purpose of this standard is to present requirements and guidelines for bacterial endotoxin testing. Includes selection of test product units, selection of test techniques
Selection and confirmation, use of routine test techniques and interpretation of test results. This standard also includes production to support the selection of jump test.
Run confirmation requirements.
Appendix A, Appendix B, and Appendix C contain the following information, respectively.
--- Background and history of endotoxin testing (see Appendix A);
--- Guide to endotoxin test methods (see Appendix B);
--- Jump test and production process confirmation guide (see Appendix B);
--- Test results and survey guidelines for excess results (see Appendix C).

7 Technical choices
7.1 Inspection Laboratories There are currently three bacterial endotoxin testing techniques available. The choice of each technology should be based on laboratory skills,
Adequate assessment of the test, sample size requirements, data handling requirements and the nature of the test sample. Current technologies and methods include.
a) Gel technology. limit test and method of determination;
b) color development techniques. kinetics and endpoint methods;
c) Turbidity technology. kinetics and endpoint methods.
See Appendix B for information on the three methods.
7.2 The method selected should be confirmed in accordance with Chapter 8. If the test method or technique is changed, it should be confirmed/verified (see 8.6).
8 Methodological confirmation
8.1 Identification of endotoxin limits
8.1.1 The test endotoxin limit is defined as the maximum allowable concentration of endotoxin that may be present in a product extract, which is related to the endotoxin limit of the product.
Value related. See Appendix B to determine the endotoxin limit for the product.
8.1.2 Once the endotoxin limit of the product has been determined, the test endotoxin limit can be calculated according to formula (1).
Endotoxin limit for medical device testing (EU/mL)=
In the formula.
K --- the allowable amount of endotoxin per device (product endotoxin limit);
N --- number of test equipment;
V --- Total amount of extract in the sample combination in milliliters (mL).
8.2 Maximum effective dilution factor (MVD)
8.2.1 Products may sometimes interfere with bacterial endotoxin testing (inhibition/enhancement). Endotoxin test water (LRW) or other suitable
Diluent dilution of the product extract reduces interference. Because dilution will also dilute the endotoxin that may be present, so there is a permission
Dilution limit. The maximum effective dilution factor is calculated according to formula (2).
Test endotoxin limit
In the formula.
Test endotoxin limit, see formula (1);
λ---the identified sputum reagent indicates sensitivity (gel method) or the lowest endotoxin used to draw the reference standard curve (color development and turbidity)
This MVD value represents the dilution factor that can be performed to overcome the inhibition/enhancement effect based on the sensitivity of the guanidine reagent. If the MVD is 4,
That is, diluting the sample extract at a ratio of no more than 4 times does not affect the ability to detect endotoxin limits of the product.
If practicable, the product should be confirmed at a dilution below the maximum effective dilution.
8.2.2 If a product is tested in accordance with MVD, the endotoxin test should be considered a qualitative test. The result is expressed as pass/fail.
A positive result indicates that the endotoxin content of the product exceeds the specified endotoxin limit. A negative result indicates the passage of the test.
8.2.3 When a product is tested below the dilution of MVD, additional dilution may be required to determine if the positive result is met.
Test requirements. Dilution can be used to obtain a valid test result. Additional dilution may not require confirmation. Thinner other than water
Interference can occur during use and should be reconfirmed.
8.3 Reagent and analyst qualification
8.3.1 Pre-test (identification of identification values / confirmation of linearity) Pre-test for gel technology
The labeling sensitivity (λ) of each batch of hydrazine reagent should be verified by inspection. The test should be in 4 2-fold dilution series (eg 2λ, λ,
0.5λ, 0.25λ dilution) was performed in a negative control. The geometric mean end point of the dilution series should be in the range of 0.5λ~2λ.
Once identified, the sensitivity is used for all calculations. The geometric mean of the indicated sensitivity is calculated according to equation (3).
Geometric mean = antilg (∑e/F) (3)
In the formula.
∑e---the sum of the logarithmic values of the endotoxin reaction endpoint concentrations for each dilution;
F --- repeat number. Pre-test for color development/turbidity technology
Verification requires confirmation that the linear standard curve spans the endotoxin dilution range used in routine analysis. Should use at least 3 different internal poisons
The concentration of the hormone establishes a standard curve. If the standard curve range is greater than 2 lg, it is advisable to add one lg for each additional lg in the curve range. each
Endotoxin concentrations should be tested in 3 parallels. In the initial quality control test, it is not advisable to take the mean of each point to calculate the linearity, linearity requirements and
The absolute value of the correlation coefficient of the endotoxin concentration range indicated by the sputum reagent production mark |r| ≥ 0.980.
If the standard curve range is less than 2 lg, it is recommended to establish a standard curve with a 2-fold dilution. If the standard curve is greater than 2 lg, it should be 10 times thinner.
The standard curve is established, and a standard is inserted for each additional lg in the range of the standard curve. The standard curve should not exceed 4 lg, because
A curve greater than 5 lg or more is not suitable and produces a false negative result.
The range of this standard curve determined in the reagent identification will be used for routine testing.
8.3.2 Identification of qualifications of analysts
Each analyst engaged in the bacterial endotoxin test should perform a capability confirmation, the analyst's ability confirmation procedure and the 8.3.1 pre-test.
The procedures specified are the same.
8.4 Product Identification/Confirmation
8.4.1 General
Each product or product precursor (see B.6.3) should be identified/confirmed to fully demonstrate the test sample itself for bacterial endotoxin testing.
The system will not produce inhibition or enhancement, otherwise it will interfere with the accuracy and sensitivity of BET. See 8.5 for sample interference information.
At least three batches should be used for initial identification/validation studies for each product or class of products.
Methods for product identification are given in 8.4.2 and 8.4.3.
8.4.2 Gel technology Prepare the solution according to Table 1. The sample solution dilution should be less than or equal to MVD, and the test system should not contain any detectable
Endotoxin. A dilution series and a negative control for each endotoxin addition amount were tested. Geometric mean endpoint concentration of each endotoxin added dilution series
[Formula (3)] shall be determined according to the formula listed in the pre-test of 8.3.1.

If the concentration of the product positive control (after subtracting the endotoxin concentration from the sample solution) is known to be added to the endotoxin concentration
Within 50% to.200%, the sample or sample diluent is considered to have no interference factor.
8.5 Sample interference
If there is interference in the bacterial endotoxin test, the sample extract may be diluted and/or treated to remove inhibition or enhancement.
8.6 Maintenance of identification/confirmation
8.6.1 The purpose of using three batches of confirmation is to determine the presence or variation of the interference factor introduced by the product. Three batches should be taken in the following cases
a) changes in the product that may affect the test, including the introduction of new materials, processing procedures or changes in product structure;
b) changes in the extraction method or beyond the specified extraction parameters (such as increased treatment, use of other temperatures, use of other solvents, etc.);
c) changes in test techniques (eg gel technology changed to color development technology); and
d) 鲎Reagent manufacturer or reagent formulation changes.
Note. For the sake of simplicity, it is acceptable to use a batch for verification if there are scientific supporting reasons.
8.6.2 A batch should be confirmed in the following cases.
a) BET test laboratory changes;
b) changes in BET materials, equipment that may affect the test; and
c) The sensitivity of the sputum reagent changes.
Note. In some cases, the available product positive control (PPC) is verified. PPC may fully detect that a change has occurred.
