Agreement allows Hyglos to use recombinant factor C technology to produce its own endotoxin products.

Lonza Walkersville, Inc. and Hyglos GmbH have announced that they have reached a mutually beneficial global settlement which includes a license agreement for Hyglos under certain Lonza patents in the area of endotoxin detection.

Specifically, the agreement allows Hyglos to use recombinant factor C technology protected by Lonza’s patents to produce Hyglos’ own endotoxin products.

The agreement also includes the dismissal of the law suit Lonza previously filed against Hyglos.

The terms of the settlement are confidential.

“Thanks to this agreement an important door has opened for a new era in endotoxin detection. We are convinced that Hyglos’ innovative assays, entirely based on recombinant molecules, are addressing important needs of endotoxin testing laboratories worldwide” said Dr. Wolfgang Mutter, General Manager of Hyglos GmbH.

“We are very glad to have reached this agreement with Hyglos. Endotoxin detection using recombinant factor C instead of Limulus amoebocyte lysates has recently been acknowledged by the FDA as an alternative method. We believe that this sustainable animal-free alternative will be the future of endotoxin detection.” concluded Dr. Teun Van der Heide, Head Lonza Bioscience.
