Horseshoe crabs survival rate after biomedical bleeding is high

response to the multiple uses for the horseshoe. "LAL is a chemical found in horseshoe crab blood used to detect the presence of endotoxins in injectible drugs and implantable devices. The chemical is more important than ever due to the anti-terrorism efforts," explains Berkson. "All vaccines, including smallpox and anthrax, must be tested for the presence of endotoxins using LAL." The research at the Horseshoe Crab Research Center is designed to provide the information needed to sustainably maintain this essential natural resource.
