Press Release 11-102 - Video
Liquid Crystal Droplets Indicate the Presence of Endotoxin

These polarized side by side videos show droplets of liquid crystal dispersed in water, before and after the addition of endotoxin. The left half of the video shows the appearance of the droplets before endotoxin is added, and the right half of the video shows the appearance of the droplets after endotoxin is added. The schematic illustrations show the interpretation of the ordering of the liquid crystal inside the droplets.
