English translation:EU/ml
Explanation:
Endotoxin values reported in Endotoxin Units/ml (EU/ml) are compared to a standard of known endotoxin content. Typically, the activity of the standard is 10 EU/ng of standard endotoxin (isolated from E.coli). Thus, 1 EU of endotoxin is approximately 0.1 ng of endotoxin standard.
