Pyrogen increases body temperature after releasing or injecting into the human blood. Pyrogen comprises several groups of microbial and non-microbial substances that primarily cause fever. Pyrogens are lipopolysaccharide in nature, lipid part of pyrogen is pyrogenic whereas polysaccharide part increases the solubility. Symptoms of pyrogen include rise in body temperature, chills, body aches; rise in arterial blood pressure and cutaneous vasoconstriction are some of the reactions caused in the human body. Pharmaceutical companies use pyrogen testing to determine the presence of bacterial toxins in medical and veterinary products. The most powerful and most widely known pyrogens are the endotoxin and lipopolysaccharides, which are cell wall components of gram negative bacteria. In 2015, the size of global pyrogen testing market was valued over USD 550 million. The value of global pyrogen market is projected to grow with a CAGR between 11.5% – 12.0% over the forecast period of 2016-2022 and reach USD XXXX million by 2022.
