Pyrogen - Plasticware (Nov/19/2009 )

why plasticware have to be daclared as pyrogen-free or non-pyrogenic?? how much endotoxins/pyrogens could be on the surface of plastic??

it sounds bizarre to me somehow! it could not be much??! are there some values?

what is meant, when plastic is declared as pyrogenfree - is it the procedure of production?



Basically the production company have taken steps to ensure that there are no contaminants on the production line, these could include contaminants from outside sources or from the manufacturing process.
