Dr. Masakazu Tsuchiya is a Senior Research Scientist for the Microbial Solutions division of Charles River. With more than 30 years experience in the detection of endotoxin and other microbial cell wall components, notable achievements include the development of tools for microbial cell wall components, such as an endotoxin-specific Limulus Amebocyte Lysate (LAL) reagent, a beta-glucan-specific LAL reagent, and the Silkworm Larvae Plasma (SLP) reagent to detect peptidoglycan and beta-glucan.
