The "Horseshoe crab" challenge =)

Their copper-based blue blood contains a substance called "Limulus Amebocyte Lysate", or "LAL".

This compound coagulates or clumps up in the presence of small amounts of bacterial toxins and is used to test for sterility of medical equipment and virtually all injectable drugs.

The term LPS was introduced to scientific semantics by R Pfeiffer in
1892 Thermostable component of gram negative bacteria was called
lipopolysaccharide ( LPS can interact with different human cells and,
depending on the dose, cause damage to them Severe consequences of LPS
in a human organism are allergies and anaphylactic shock.[/FONT]

In the presence of lipopolysaccharide, amebocytes obtained from horseshoe crabs, gravitate to the bottom of the test tube and “ A gel clot is formed It is used for the evaluation of the purity of the growth hormone containing drug.[/FONT]
