Leaders in pyrogen testing.

With the highest reactivity, sensitivity, reproducibility and batch sizes of 2,000 – MAT BioTech's Monocyte Activation Test (MAT) kit provides the best performing pyrogen test available on the market. Save legal fees and save lives.


Changes in EP regulations for pyrogen tests are now being enforced. 

1. No more use of rabbits

RPT no longer permitted as there is now a viable in vitro alternative.

2. Obliged risk assessments

If using BET as batch release test, NEP tests are now also mandatory.

3. MM6 no full pyrogen test

MM6 cell line alone not suitable for detecting NEPs.

Recognising the seriousness of instances where NEP contaminations occur, the EP now mandates consistent testing of NEPs in-process, or at batch release of all parenteral drugs. EP specifically recommends the MAT. 

Endotoxin and 

non-Endotoxin tests are required.

For every producer of parenteral drugs or medical devices distributed in Europe.

Using MAT is also relevant for biotech companies, pharmacies performing in-house pyrogen testing, Test service and diagnostic laboratories and clinical research organizations (CROs).

One MAT kit to rule them all (that's ours).


Highest reactivity

0.5 EU/ml LPS can produce 10 thousand picogram/ml IL-6.


Highest sensitivity

A lower limit of detection of

0.004 EU/ml.


Highest reproducibility

Consistent results within and across our batches of up to 2,000 vials.
