Endotoxin Testing in Peritoneal Effusion

Peritoneal fluid is a fluid produced in the abdominal cavity that lubricates the tissue surface of the abdominal wall and the inner wall of the pelvic cavity. It covers most of the organs of the abdomen. Increased ascites is called ascites. Peritoneal fluid sampling is usually performed by puncture. Spontaneous infection of peritoneal effusion can cause spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) and endotoxemia. Intestinal bacterial overgrowth and intestinal wall permeability increase in patients with liver cirrhosis, and the local immune defense function of the intestinal wall is reduced, causing intestinal bacteria to transfer into the circulatory system through mesenteric lymph nodes, resulting in bacteremia. The peritoneal effusion is caused by the weakened activity of the reticuloendothelial system and the decline of opsonin, immunoglobulin, complement and albumin. Because endotoxin is part of the cell wall of Gram-negative bacteria, it is usually absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract into portal vein blood and cleared by the reticuloendothelial cells of the liver. In patients with severely damaged liver or overt portal hypertension, endotoxins can appear in ascites or systemic circulation if they are not infected.


Our Services for endotoxin testing in peritoneal effusion

Creative BioMart offers a corresponding endotoxin testing service. You can purchase the corresponding endotoxin removal kit and related accessory products according to the needs of your own samples. We guarantee that all instruments, water, reagents, and consumables used in the experiment are free of endotoxins, and the experiment is conducted in a clean room to ensure that low levels of endotoxins are returned to the sample. In addition, we can also provide you with related services including:
